External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Bold black currant and licorice flavors are highlighted by rich smoke in this yummy ’09 Bordeaux Superieur. Drink with lamb shanks or duck confit.

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.

A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, this Bordeaux is really well made. It has depth and structure with a great balance of dark berries and peppery spice. I was greatly impressed by the way it evolved in the glass with layers of fruit and firm tannins. This bargain wine is drinking beautifully now, but will age well for another 5 years or more.
