Bellevue Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2003

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Tiny yields of 29 hectoliters per hectare from a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc have resulted in a terrific, dense inky/blue/purple-colored 2003 offering sumptuous aromas of creme de cassis, crushed rocks, flowers, and black raspberries, ...

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.
