"This is already a balanced wine, rich in tannins, packed with ripe blackberry fruits and with a dense texture. It has weight and richness from the 50% Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend and the 20% of Petit Verdot that adds a great structure. Drink from 2025." 93 points, Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast
"Aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of spices and wet earth. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. So pretty and refined. Drink in 2020." 92 points, James Suckling
"A hidden gem from the southern part of the Médoc (north of Macau) is the 2015 Château Belle-Vue and this estate is located right next to Giscours in Margaux. Readers need to know that the southern part of the Médoc was the sweet spot in 2015 and this is a prime region to look for non-classified growths that overdeliver. This vibrant purple colored beauty boasted terrific notes of crème de cassis, dried flowers, licorice, and spice, with a dusty minerality developing with time in the glass. With medium to full-bodied richness, impeccable balance and a silky texture, it’s well worth a case purchase and should keep for 10-15+ years. Tasted twice. This wine is close to 40% each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with the balance Petit Verdot, aged in 40% new wood." 92 points, Jeb Dunnuck
Acquired by Vincent Mulliez in 2004, Château Belle-Vue comes from an exceptional terroir whose history merges with the one of Bordeaux wines. In the past, it was the headquarter of an active fleet, the Château is now famous for its vineyards. Highly reputed since the nineteenth century, this area has won great awards: a Gold Medal in Amsterdam in 1895, Silver in Brussels in 1897, Paris in 1900 and Bordeaux in 1907. The latest vintages were also regularly distinguished in the competitions and by the International Press. Since the untimely death of Vincent Mulliez in 2010, his wife Isabelle took over the management of the property, pursuing with determination the work initiated by her husband. This rigorous and enterprising man had managed in a few years to raise his 3 properties, Belle-Vue, Gironville and Bolaire among the best value for price wines of the Medoc.
