    A fresh and aromatic single-variety wine from Haut-Medoc

    The estate
    Acquired by Vincent Mulliez in 2004, Chateau Belle-Vue boasts an exceptional terroir, whose history has defined the quality of Bordeaux wines. This Haut-Medoc estate, near Margaux is located on the left bank of Bordeaux.

    The vineyard
    The 14-hectare vineyard of Chateau Belle-Vue is carefully cultivated. This area stands out for a high proportion of petit verdot, which represents 20% of the vineyard's grape plantings. This is, indeed, rare in Bordeaux, setting Chateau Belle-Vue apart from the rest with a wine that is made exclusively with Petit Verdot grapes. This wine is produced from a terroir with dry palus soils upon an ancient island of the Garonne. The vineyard is certified for High Environmental Value.

    The winemaking
    Cold maceration for 10 days. No pressing. Post-fermentation maceration at high temperature (28 ° C), for 20 days.

    The aging
    25% in traditional Italian amphora, 25% in new 400L Austrian oak barrels, 25% in barrels of two previous wines and 25% in barrels of three previous wines. Aging from 14 to 16 months.

    Petit Verdot

    The tasting
