Chateau Bellevue, 2007, Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux

Property of Mr Flabby Less
Chateau Bellevue, 2007, Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux

This is a robust wine with rich sweet oak scent and tastes of ripe black berries. Although this wine is rich, fleshy, chewy and dense, it is very elegant on the palates. Tannins are firm and rounded. Appealing dark red colour. Finishes well. Pretty full bodied. Overall, this is a highly balanced wine with good aftertaste. Good to drink now. This lovely wine gets 91-93 points from Robert Parker.

According to my favourite wine-maker, Hubert de Bouard, Chateau Bellevue is the Petrus of St. Emilion. Chateau Bellevue produces on average about 1,500 cases of wine per year. The second wine of Chateau Bellevue is called La Caze Bellevue.
