88-90 Points, Neal Martin
"The Château Belle-Vue 2014 is a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and 22% Petit Verdot cropped at 53 hectoliter per hectare and raised in 25% new wood. The nose is a little austere at first but it begins to open up with style. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe blackberry and undergrowth notes, fine tannin with a light white-pepper tone on the finish. This is a fine Haut-Médoc to drink over the next decade"
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Belle Vue has an attractive and clean bouquet with briary, cedar and tobacco scents, though I would have liked a little more vigor. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannin, a crisp line of acidity and perky red berry fruit. It just needs more body and weight towards the finish that drifts to its conclusion. Tasted September 2016.
