BACKGROUND

Château Bellevue is located on an over 200 acre vineyard and produces a range of Bordeaux whites and reds. The château is located on a large hill, overlooking the vineyards, and is locally nicknamed the “Tuscany of Bordeaux.” Winemaker, Daniel Sore, utilizes the art of modern wine-making to produce Bordeaux wines that are characteristic of the local terroir.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

The wines of Bellevue benefit from the latest techniques of vinification: harvested when grapes and seeds come to perfect maturity. De-stemming and crushing of the grapes, pneumatic pressing, skin maceration for the Sauvignons, “débourbage”, cold stabilization for 4 days, temperature-controlled fermentation for 8 to 10 days. Aged on fine lees for 4 to 6 months.

TASTING NOTES

Brilliant light yellow color. On the nose notes of ripe fruit, peach, exotic fruits, and pink grapefruit. The mouth is aromatic and fleshy with sweetness and great freshness.
