The 2018 vintage started with conditions that required a lot of work in the vineyard. However, the beautiful summer and long autumn that followed made it possible for the teams to bring in the best quality fruit. At Chateau Belle-Vue, the grape harvest began on September 26 with the Merlot, followed by Petit Verdot on October 12, Cabernet Sauvignon between October 10 and 17, and finished with Cabernet Franc and Carmenere.
The Chateau Belle-Vue 2018 clearly expresses the typicality of a Haut-Medoc wine from great soils of deep, coarse gravel. The Chateau Belle-Vue 2018 offers a superb expression of fruit with great freshness. The signature grape variety of the property, Petit Verdot, brings its unique personality to this vintage. A fantastic choice from Haut-Medoc from an excellent vintage.
