Natalie's Score: 90/100

Château Bellevue La Forêt 2020 is produced from Cabernet Franc , Cabernet Sauvignon, Négrette and Syrah wine grapes and an excellent value Fronton red blend at $16. The wine is rich, dry and full-bodied with bright red fruits, chocolate, earthy herbs and spicy flavour, Tannins are structured. Each varietal was vinified separately and the wine was aged for 24 months in large oak barrels prior to bottling. The little known Négrette wine grape appeared in the 12th century and was named "Mavro" (black) originally brought in from Cyprus by the Knights of the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem.

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