Located in Saint-Emilion, Château Bellevue’s history dates back to the 17th century. At the time, the “Fief de Bellevue” belonged to the Lacaze family. Château Angelus’ team has been looking after the Château since 2007. The name “Bellevue” comes from the exceptional view that the Château has over the Dordogne valley. At the heart of the vineyard is a 2.5-hectare park that is used as an island of biodiversity. The history of Saint-Emilion’s vines and wines are illustrated as you walk around the island. Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt have implemented biodynamic practices to improve drainage and soil maintenance. The quality of Château Bellevue’s terroir makes its wine powerful, complex, and with a nice tannic structure. The bouquet is pleasant with notes of woody red fruits and vanilla and the finish is minty with a taste of liquorice.
