This robust, well-priced French red wine comes to us via Philip Grant, Propriétaire. The wine is mostly made from the Negrette grape and offers lip-smacking delicious flavours of dark fruit and cedar brush. Decant 1 hours and try it with a juicy steak tonight.

Food pairings: winter stew, rare cuts of meat, sausage cassoulet.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

floral, berrries and spice intertwine on the nose. A measured amount of fruit along with spice. Tannins are evolving nicely and a hint of leather late on the palate.
From Fronton in France's Southwest wine region, Chateau Bellevue La Foret (2013) is a well-priced red from winemaker Philip Grant. The wine is mostly from the Negrette grape known for its dark fruit flavours, spiciness and tannins. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
