Bellevue Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2000
External Reviews for Bellevue Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol
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.
