Chateau Bellevue la Randee Bordeaux 2009

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose showed intense plum, black currant, herbs and gravelly earth. On the palate it was medium-bodied yet velvety with tart red berries, young fig and hints of bell pepper. The finish showed this wine’s structure and acidity with flavors of dried cherry and herbs.

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 is not a "fine Bordeaux", but it's a nice, inexpensive wine that can give you a glimpse of what goes into a Bordeaux wine. Call it a "Cote du Rhone" of Bordeaux wines - approachable, affordable, understandable and tasty.
