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.

  • Château Belle-Vue Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The 2005 Château Belle-Vue Haut Médoc presents a deep, inky red color in the glass, with some brightness around the edges. The nose is quintessential Bordeaux, with hints of vanilla, spice, leather and cedar. There's also a hint of smoke that seems to tie everything together. The taste presents some early hints of ripe fruit which quickly giv... Read More

  • Chateau Bellevue la Randee Bordeaux 2009

    Snoothrank:

    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 wineÄôs structure and acidity with flavors of dried cherry and herbs. Read More

  • Château Belle-Vue Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2007

  • Château Mazeris-Bellevue Red Bordeaux Blend Canon-Fronsac 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A light, bouncy wine that is fruity and acidic... it's frivolity does not give way to a satisfying experience, just a smooth forgettable embrace without the complexity or raw sensuality to stimulate the unusual mind. Read More

  • Château Belle-Vue Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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... Read More

  • On a warm June day I was lost on the winding roads of Canon-Fronsac, an appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. When I finally turn up more than an hour late at Château Moulin-Pey-Labrie, owner Grégoire Hubau makes a few witty digs about wine critics rarely finding their way to this little-known region. We head for his cellar, hung with amusing po... Read More
