Tasting Notes

Robert Parker, April 2014, Score: 87

Consistently one of the better Cru Bourgeois, Belle-Vue’s 2011 possesses a dark ruby/plum color, abundant fruit, good purity and ripeness, a Margaux-like finesse as well as floral notes, soft tannins and medium body. Drink this sleeper of the vintage over the next 3-5 years. The blend in 2011 is 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot and a whopping 23% Petit Verdot. Drink 2014-2019

Region

Haut-Médoc, Red Bordeaux

The Haut-Médoc is an appellation within the Médoc that stretches along the left bank of the Gironde from Blanquefort in the south to the north of Bordeaux. The region encompasses the more famous communes of St-Estèphe, Pauillac, St-Julien and Margaux. Following the 1855 classification many of its most famous estates were classified and scored as first, second, third, fourth or fifth growths. This was based on their social and commercial positions at the time. Most of these classed growths use the village appellation name, such as Pauillac. However five of these classed growths fell outside a village appellation so take the name Haut-Médoc. Many of the vineyards which are classified as Haut-Médoc may actually also be referred to as Cru Bourgeois wines. These wines have lower permitted yields and so offer great value for money.
