The Wine
Intense robe with ruby with vivid reflections. The bouquet develops with red fruit aromas such as cherry and plum with spicy nuances. A supple and round palate with a nice balance of tannins, red fruits and elegant licorice. Pairs fantastic with red meat, pork, indian and italian cuisine.

Situated amongst the vineyards of the Blayais region, Chateau la Rose Bellevue has been producing wine for four generations. The vineyard benefits from the unique climatic conditions found in Nord-Gironde, close to the Gironde Estuary in the district of Saint-Palais “AOC Premières Côtes de Blaye". Chateau la Rose Bellevue offers a range of award-winning wines. The vineyard is well recognised in the Hachette Wine Guide.

Winemaker Jérôme EYMAS gained valuable experience in new winemaking techniques by working with reputable Australian wineries such as Boyton's of Bright in Ovens Valley in Victoria and Pfeiffer in Rutherglen. He extended his knowledge in making Champagne for Pierre Bertrand in Cumières, in making Condrieu,St. Joseph with Stéphane Montez from Domaine du Monteillet in Chavanay and in making Côte Rotie with Stéphane Ogier from Domaine Michel et Stéphane Ogier in Ampuis. He also undertook a wine making study in the vineyards of Chile and Argentina in 2002.
