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 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.
