Château La Croix Bellevue 2011
The vineyard is entirely planted with a high density of 7000 vine-stocks per ha. Debudding, thinning out of leaves and green harvest are carried out in the vineyard. The harvest is performed manually to ensure optimum maturity of the Cabernet Sauvignon and perfect-sorting out the berries. The wine ages for 14 months in oak barrels (50% of French new oak). Château La Croix Bellevue is the wine with the most typical Médoc character as it is blended with 50% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Intense and deep color. Complex nose of black fruit, spicy vanilla. Very deep. Notes of cassis withagitation. Concentration of flavors on the palate, beautiful tannins, very rounded. Very Harmonious, beautiful balance and great force. Very long, with a return on the aromatic blue berries.
