Château Belle Vue, Cru Bourgeois, Médoc 2016
"...classified as Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in 2018 and is noted for its unusually high percentage of Petit Verdot in its blends (20 per cent in this incarnation). Rich, ripe and rewarding, with remarkable concentration, its bang on song now but will last for many a year."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
How does the wine taste?
A blend of 45% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot and 20% petit verdot, this is a very showy claret. Big, concentrated and expressive; brimming with black fruits and layers of sweet spice, but with a freshness and lovely balance.
