Tasting Notes: Chateau Bellevue Peycharneau Bordeaux Superieur is a deep garnet robe with mauve refraction. Its beautiful nose is very concentrated and complex with woody vanilla flavors, delicate toasty notes, and red cherry aromas. On the palate, it’s full-bodied, fleshy, structured, and velvety. Good tannic balance. A beautiful, savory finish with long aromatic persistence.

The Domain: Château Château Bellevue Peycharneau is located in the historical village of Sainte-Foy-la-Grande in Pineuilh, with vineyards alongside the Dordogne River. It is the eastern neighbor of the St.-Emilion region and offers similar quality but at a much more affordable price. It used to be a Bordeaux Supérieur but was promoted into Côtes de Bordeaux Sainte Foy in the 2016 vintage. The owner of the estate, the Onillon family and the cellar master/winemaker, Mr. Jean-Claude Pirès, have succeeded in producing every year an outstanding wine at a good value. It regularly receives international press and gold medals. The vineyard is 15 hectares in size (37 acres) with high density planting and rigorous vineyard management. The grapes are hand picked during harvest and are then put in stainless steel vats for fermentation. The wine ages 12 months in new French oak and is then bottled. 5,000 cases produced annually. Estate grown and bottled.
