Love the minerality to this red with lots of crushed stones in addition to blackberries. Full, dense and polished tannins and a fresh finish. Very pretty. Mar 2017,
A sleek iron frame guides the core of focused cherry and cassis notes, with a flash of warm stone on the finish. Well done. Apr 2017, James Molesworth,
Astonishingly rich colours on this wine, clearly easy extractions of anthocyanins. Deep spice on the nose, exotic without being too much. Quite an unusual profile for the vintage, slightly more serious and upright, but still very attractive, expanding on the mid-palate and then retracting on the finish. Good quality, a little subdued but my guess is that is the high Petit Verdot content (20%) just needs time to loosen up, because the fruit is extremely ripe and appealing. They also made a 100% Petit Verdot cuvée for first time in 2016. Apr 2017,, Drink: 2024-2038
The 2016 Belle Vue is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 20% Petit Verdot picked at 55 hectoliters per hectare between 3-20 October and matured in 30% new oak. It has a surprisingly backward bouquet that demanded some coaxing, a succinct nose with just a touch of pencil lead. The palate is well balanced with succulent black fruit, a light grip in the mouth and a very Margaux-like finish. The 2015 was very fine, but I think this might turn out to be even better. This comes recommended. Apr 2017,, Drink: 2020-2035
The 2016 Belle-Vue is plump, juicy and delicious. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry jam, mint and sweet spices race across the palate. Sumptuous and flamboyant, the 2016 offers plenty of depth and intensity at a budget-friendly price.
Sample a bit tired. Second sample: Very deep purplish crimson. Fresh and a little austere. Not ample but correct and pretty vital. Very fast fade. Bit of a disappointment. Apr 2017,, Drink: 2021-2027
