Natalie's Score: 90/100
A remarkably well-made, delicious French red wine, especially for this price point. Aromas of black fruit and toasty oak. Full-bodied with a supple texture. The grapes for this wine are grown on the highest terrace of the Fronton appellation, nestled in the heart of southwest France. This is a vibrant blend of Negrette, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah grapes. Decant 1-2 hours and enjoy with a rare steak.
Food pairings: winter stew, rare cuts of meat, sausage cassoulet.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
This is a really fun barbecue wine to make sure you always have on hand. This is one of the few examples of a wine containing Negrette in the Canadian market. It is also blended with Cab Sauv and Shiraz.
Medium purple/ruby colour. Aromas of prune, tomato leaf, balsam, and plum. Quite a closed wine and it needs decanting. More violet florality and some cherry come out over time.
The flavours run a rance of exotic and firm spice help up with some fruit. Cherry, plum, and currant.
The area it is from, is refered to as Southwest France. Other areas of note, in this vicinity, include: Pacherenc de Vic-Bilh, Gaillac, and the famous Cahors. Southwest has a lpt to offer in wine experiences. The names may not all be familiar (or pronouncable), but the wine here is great. Put this next to some marinated red meat, or maybe some rabbit stew.
|Château Bellevue La Forêt 2014 is a well-priced, robust red blend of 55% Négrette, 20% Syrah, 15% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from Fronton in France's Southwest wine region and produced by Philip Grant, Propriétaire. This southern red is rustic with ripe dark fruit, smoky herbs and savoury spice on the palate. Pair with an equally rust meaty or game stew. - Community Wine Reviews|
