The wines of Bellevue are characterised by their power, their great aromatic complexity and mineral notes. The high percentage of Merlot in the blend will be gradually diminished over the coming years through increased planting of Cabernet Franc. Through the quality of its terroir, surrounded by three premier grand cru classé Châteaux, one cannot help reflecting on the potential for greatness this property has.

Wine EnthusiastBig, deep fruit, smoky tannins, but beautifully integrated, rich, packed with plum juice sweetness.

Wine SpectatorPlush, with linzer and casis notes harnessed by a plum skin frame, while sweet spice and toasted applewood notes flesh out the finish. Drink now through 2019. 1,500 cases made.
