Château Belle-Vue Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2002
Tasting notes This small vintage 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

Made from 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, and 18% Petit Verdot, the 2002 exhibits a fragrant perfume of flowers, cedar, black currants, cherries, and blue fruits. Medium-bodied with sweet tannin, a lush entry, and a moderately tannic finish, this serious 2002 should drink well young yet age nicely for a decade. This interesting estate, which has been pushing the envelope of quality, is under the radar of most consumers, but it deserves a serious look by those wanting to maximize their purchasing power.
