Bellevue Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

"...reveals aromas reminiscent of a liqueur of crushed rocks, black currants, and raspberries. The tannins are still present, and the wine is firmer than I expected, but it is loaded. Made in a distinctive, singular, elegant style...95+." WA 6/10.

Acquired by Vincent Mulliez in 2004, Château BELLE-VUE results from a terroir whose history merges with that of the wine of Bordeaux. Located on the commune typically “médocaine” of Macau, yesterday seat of an active shipping industry, now famous for its vineyards, this vineyard knows a true rebirth. Château BELLE-VUE enjoyed a very good reputation from the 19th century and won many awards: Gold medal in Amsterdam in 1895, as well as silver medals in Brussels (1897), Paris (1900) and Bordeaux (1907). Over the last vintages, notably since 1999, the wines of Château BELLE-VUE have been regularly distinguished with honours and medals in wine competitions and in the international press. The 10 hectare vineyard is located on a plateau with deep gravely soil (7-10 metres) adjacent to Château Giscours (Margaux AOC). The soil is naturally well drained, enabling the grapes to ripe early.

Bellevue's debut vintage...is a whopper...a glorious perfume of blackberries and blueberries underlaid with a striking minerality, full body, high tannin, abundant glycerin, concentration, and muscle, and a 40-second finish...A tour de force!... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Bellevue 750ml

This is a classic right bank Bordeaux with a high proportion of Merlot (60-70%) grown on clay and limestone soil. The Lacaz family have been making wine on their six-hectare estate for three generations. The wine ages for two years in cask before release to give it superior age-ability though, with its preponderance of Merlot, it is approachable in its youth.

Bright ruby. Vibrant aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, espresso and licorice, along with spice, mint and mineral nuances. Spicy, bright and already expressive in the mouth, with lush dark berry and floral flavors complicated by a truffley note. T... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2000 Bellevue 750ml
