Natalie's Score: 92/100

Produced from mainly the Négrette wine grape with Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay and Cabernet Franc. Love the crushed ripe red cherry, plum, strawberry, rhubarb flavours on the palate with just a smattering of spice and dried herbs. Balanced acidity and a perfect pairing to baked ham or barbeque chicken.

Rosé food pairings: strawberry spinach salad, roast turkey, veal scaloppini.

Reviews and Ratings

A great value rosé from Fronton, Southwest France under $15. Château Bellevue La Forêt 2018 is fragrant and juicy with strawberries, raspberry, red currant and citrus spice flavours on the palate. Finishes with mouth-watering acidity. Produced mostly from the Negrette wine grape which first appeared in the Southwest in the 12th century and is believed to have originated in Greece. Chill and pair with barbequed ribs. - 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.
