Vintages Wine Panel: Château Bellevue lies just outside of Saint-Michel de Fronsac in the heart of the Right Bank. Olivier Decelle purchased the estate in 2000 and his commitment to quality is plain to see, investing heavily in the vineyard and winery as well as introducing biodynamic methods of viticulture. Well-structured, with ripe tannins, and beautiful ripe, red fruit, this wine is clearly part of the new wave of classically made, affordable Bordeaux coming out of minor appellations. My note: Exhibits a concentrated nose of mocha, cassis, blackcurrant and vanillin. A elegant wine with a long finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon Blend food pairings: steak au poivre, Irish stew, rabbit in mustrad sauce, bittersweet chocolate.
