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 petit chateau was a sneak preview for the local 2007 Bordeaux Release officially due next weekend. Though not quite as structured as the 2005, this modern Haut-Medoc wine is cherry-black and redolent of coffee, cola, Western Red Cedar smoke and crushed blackberry. These appealing scents couple nicely with a slight acerbity on entry - but no forward tannin to speak of. Finish is medium and warm. Easy drinking, though strongly flavored. Petit Verdot and Carmenere in the blend.

Very bitter when first opened. It mellowed after about an hour, but was very boring. Absent of fruit.

A delicious blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, and a whopping 20% Petit Verdot, this estate continues to over-perform its humble pedigree. The 2007 reveals dense, smoky, black cherry and raspberry notes intermixed with a hint of loamy soil ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Belle Vue 750ml
