Château Belle-Vue 2013 Haut-Médoc Cru Bourgeois


Belle-Vue is a rising star in Médoc and has seen its reputation growing over the last few years. It is well known among wine lovers for its incredible quality while keeping a reasonable price. The relatively high proportion of Petit Verdot makes it particularly subtle and elegant.

2013 was a challenging vintage in Bordeaux, but a great success for Château Belle-Vue. With an astonishing complexity, it is already great and will last several years. “Really delicious” according to Jancis Robinson, Belle-Vue is likely to remain one of Your Sommelier’s very favourites for the years to come!

87/100 "Smooth depth of fruit supple and classy for 2013 from a neighbour of La Lagune."

  

16.5/20 "Warm baking-spice, white pepper and very light roasted-coffee note on the nose. A broad swathe of welcoming spicy fruit followed quickly by a sweep of mouthfilling acidity. Rigorous tannins that charge in like cavalry and then elegantly loop round and corral up the fruit for the long term. Concentration and firmness, yet there is a refined line to this wine. Full, but restrained. Lots here for the future? Beautiful shape in the mouth. Really delicious. (TC)"

88/100 "Close to Margaux, this château has produced a ripe, soft wine that brings out the fruitiness found in the best of 2013 wines. It is full of black-currant juiciness, with acidity and soft tannins. It should be ready to drink soon, certainly from 2017."
