Winemaker's Notes:

Châteaux Bellevue is barrel-aged for six months on its lees (100% new oak) for a total of approximately 24 months. Final blending takes place just before bottling, and the wine is neither fined nor filtered.
My Notes:

About Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte:

Until recently, tiny Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte, nestled on the Pavie plateau, was virtually unknown by wine connoisseurs. The size of the vineyard - just 2.5 hectares - was undoubtedly the main reason for this involuntary anonymity. However, the second part of the chateau's name, reminiscent of its famous neighbors La Mondotte and Chateau Troplant-Mondot, gives us an idea of Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte's exceptional terrior.
