Château Belle-Vue Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

A really good example of the benefits of investment in smaller, well-locatedpetits châteaux. This one lies near Ch. Giscours, and benefits from theMédoc's rolling gravel terrain as well as a more modern approach in thewinery. There's plenty of firm fruit here, balanced with new oak which, whileevident, combines very well to make a satisfying, fuller-bodied style ofBordeaux for drinking 2009-2011.

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.

This sensational sleeper of the vintage is far better than the more famous "Bellevue" from St.-Emilion that proved so disappointing in 2006. This blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and a whopping 20% Petit Verdot is a lovely, round, pure, d... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Belle Vue 750ml
