Chateau Bellevue is in the Fronsac region on the right bank of Bordeaux. It is close to its more famous neighbors, Pomerol and St. Emilion. At one time, Fronsac was the most famous village on the right bank for one simple reason; King Charlemagne liked the wines. That's all it takes.

Bellevue has been the star of Fronsac for centuries and still is. It sits on one of the finest terroirs in the area with soil that has just the right amount of rock, sand, and minerals for growing outstanding grapes. And now it has the ownership to take advantage of those qualities.

It is now owned by the Labrune family who also owns another stellar property, Chateau la Dauphine. Jean Claude Labrune purchased the property in 2011 from Guillaume Halley for less money than Halley was offered from Asian and British investors because he wanted it in the hands of someone who would not only keep its great name, but improve on it. Labrune had those hands.

Bellevue was already ahead of the game by being a completely biodynamic vineyard. Labrune was committed to upholding that stance as he believes it is the best way to express the terroir of the Chateau.

Two things stand out here. First, Michele Roland is the winemaker. Second, like it's most famous neighbor, Chateau Petrus, it is 100% Merlot. This accounts for the incredibly lush presence of the wine and one that would match filet en croute with wild mushrooms.
