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.

Finally a modern-style, excellent quality Claret that is affordable to all but the indigent. Bottled in heavy glass weighty enough to bring down a nasty criminal, this wine opens up with an inviting plum, smoke and coffee nose. Almost black, it is deeper, more integrated and satisfying than either its neighbor Gironville or prior vintages. The entry is smooth and luscious with delicious black fruit and coffee. The Petit Verdot component works well - contrary to comments ascribed to Peter Sichel on this variety. Excellent value and approachable now.

This elegant, charming, supple-textured effort reveals good berry fruit, a hint of spicy oak and underbrush, and a stylish, classic personality. Enjoy it over the next 5-6 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Belle Vue 750ml

Toasty and smoky oak frames black cherry and currant flavors in this firm yet racy red, which has solid tannins, but fresh acidity keeps it lively. Balanced and harmonious, this is polished, in the modern style. Drink now through 2016. 4,870 cases ma... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Belle Vue 750ml

Fashioned from very low yields of 21 hectoliters per hectare, the 2008 Bellevue seemed to be as backward and unevolved as any of the 2008s, apparently because of the late malolactic fermentations and more elevated acidities in this vintage. A blend o... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Belle Vue 750ml
