2018 Château Côtes de Bellevue Côtes de Bourg
Château Côtes de Bellevue is a family property situated in the appellation Côtes de Bourg. Since 1987, the Château belongs to Nelly and Ludovic Neveu. This red wine is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, that were planted 30 years ago, fermented and aged exclusively in stainless steel tanks. It is a fruity and easy-drinking Bordeaux, with aromas of blackberries and plums on the nose, and a hint of smokiness. On the palate, it is medium bodied, and round with soft tannins. Enjoy with vast array of dishes like roast chicken or pot au feu.
90 points, James Suckling. "A fruity and friendly red with plum and berry aromas and flavors. Medium body, round and soft tannins and a fruity finish. Lovely and drinkable now."
