2005 Bordeaux has received widespread critical acclaim as one of the greatest vintages in living memory & this has not been restricted to just the classified growths . Many of the lesser known terroirs or appellations have excelled in 2005, Robert Parker stating “…these are some of the finest wine bargains of the world…”
Parker describes the wines from such Estates as 'Little Big Ones', adding 'These wines represent many earnest, sincere, over-achieving men and women who are taking unheralded, less prestigious terroirs and turning out brilliant wines...If you are a wine consumer, this is where to spend your money'.
Haut Bellevue dates back to the end of the 19th century and was originally a modest one acre operation. Subsequent generations have expanded the vineyard to 39.5 acres. The vines are planted on light coloured, gravel soils, with total production today around 4000 cases. The quality of Chateau Haut Bellevue has improved considerably over the last few years with the Chateau being reclassified to Cru Bourgeois status in 2003.
Made from a blend of 50% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Petit Verdot. Almost opaque black crimson colour with purple mauve hue. Lifted nose with violet top note followed by a hint of blackcurrant. Good weight. Fine grained tannins, excellent balance. Flavours of blackcurrant and mulberry, which run through to the aftertaste.
