Château Bellevue Rouge 2016 Bordeaux Supérieur


Château Bellevue is a lovely family vineyard in the heart of the Entre-Deux-Mers, a large area located between the left bank (Médoc & Graves) and the right bank (St-Emilion, Pomerol). This Bordeaux Supérieur is the flagship wine of the estate and is the perfect example of a very well-made Bordeaux. We really like the addition of Malbec in the blend, which brings a nice spicy touch to the wine. The palate is smooth with soft tannins, fruit and spice aromas and a persistent finish. Perfect match for red meat and game!
