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.

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!...

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.

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.
