Wine Advocate ReviewRated 87-91A sleeper of the vintage, the opaque purple-colored 2001 (a blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, and 20% Petit Verdot) reveals terrific notes of plums, black currants, smoke, licorice, and camphor. The wine is medium-bodied, with sweet tannin, and a long, concentrated finish. This is an estate that needs to be taken seriously. An intriguing aspect to Belle-Vue is the high percentage of Petit Verdot used in the final blend, 20% in 2001 and 12% in 2000. The wine is aged on the lees and bottled unfiltered. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2012.


Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting notes This small vintag continues to seduce us by its brightness and its potential. The 2009 pursues a very beautiful series. Thanks to an important proportion of verdots (20 %), it shows a very good righteousness and a freshness. The mouth is ample, fleshy and deep, on beautiful notes of black fruits, and finale brings a welcome salt touch. Harmonies Grilled meats, white meats, duck breast
