Tasting Notes
16,5/20 4 étoiles - Decanter
Rich black berry fruits, elegantly extracted and good length, an elegant, polished wine. Drink 2014-2020.
17/20 - Jancis Robinson
From the family of the late Vincent Mulliez, like Gironville. Blackish. Very chewy finish and lots of concentration on the way. Something like elderberry juice here. No shortage of oomph but this needs time. It’s a bit brutal on the finish at the moment.

My first wine memory
The rigorous beauty of vineyards in the Bordeaux landscape, during spring

The history of the Château
100 years ago, wines of Château Belle-Vue were rewarded with gold medal in Amsterdam in 1895 and with silver medal in Bruxelles in 1897. Wines retrieved good reputation from the 90's thanks to a qualitative development and mostly after the buyout of the estate in 2004 by Vincent Mulliez.
