This Belle-Vue 2015 is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 15% Petit Verdot. The estate harvested the grapes between the 17th of September and 9th of October. The robe of this Haut-Médoc is dense with blue-toned reflects. The nose is fresh with intense aromas of mashed blackberries. This wine is well concentrated and is dominated by jammy black fruit aromas, particularly of blackcurrants. The mouth shows density, amplitude and creamy smooth tannins. The finale is gently woody. This yet classical yet modern wine has a great ageing potential.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Belle-Vue, located next to Giscours in northern Macau, is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 15% Petit Verdot matured in 40% new oak. There was some reduction to contend with on the nose, since they use less SO2 during the élevage; the palate, however, shows good potential with firm tannin, fresh and nicely poised with a foursquare, but fine minerally finish.
