Reviews for 2010 Belle Vue Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2011
Rounded and enticing with a mix of crushed blueberry plum and raspberry fruit backed by spice and toasty vanilla hints. Not shy about the toast but there's plenty of fruit as well. -J.M.

The Belle-Vue 2010 has a ripe toasty almost exotic bouquet with a touch of Turkish Delight! But it has good delineation and purity - very pretty and enticing.

But it has good delineation and purity - very pretty and enticing. The palate is ripe and extrovert with prominent vanillary new oak quite tannic and sharp on the finish very polished but perhaps a little predictable?...

From a blend of 50% Merlot 30% Merlot and 20% Petit Verdot oak vanilla forest floor floral and cassis aromas open to a medium bodied soft textured wine offering ample fresh cassis and dark cherry.

50% cabernet sauvignon 30% merlot and 20% petit verdot. Planted in deep gravelly soils situated just south of a jalle (drainage ditch) - that separates Belle-Vue from Giscours.

Planted in deep gravelly soils situated just south of a jalle (drainage ditch) - that separates Belle-Vue from Giscours. Table-sorted and after a 25-day cold soak fermented in stainless with long 50-day maceration with frequent gravity-driven délestages; aging projected for 15 months in 40% new and 60% one-wine old barrels. The nose is evolved with blackberry and black plum framed in caramel and very primary at this juncture. Jammy fruit is balanced with medium-to-high acid resulting in a wine that is high toned precise and fresh. Tasted twice.
