2009 Lussac Saint-Émilion

Château de Bellevue

2009 Lussac Saint-Émilion Château de Bellevue - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

The graffiti carved into the limestone walls underneath Château de Bellevue by American G.I.s during World War I is really a site to be seen. The ideal temperature within the underground caves makes it a perfect place to age the wine in barrique until ready for bottling. Château de Bellevue is a certified organic producer that makes a deep, berry-fruit, silky Merlot from the clay and limestone soils on the right bank of the Garonne River. This exceptional red Bordeaux drinks well right away but will age impressively and blow your mind, considering the reasonable price you paid.

About Bordeaux

Often considered the wine capital of the world, Bordeaux and its wines have captured the minds, hearts, and wallets of wine drinkers for centuries. For many, the wines provide an inalienable benchmark against which all other wines are measured.

Bordeaux is divided into three winegrowing regions with the city that gives the region its name in the near geographical center. The “right bank,” or the area located east of the Dordogne River, produces wines that are predominantly Merlot with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The “left bank” is located to the west of the Garonne River and produces wines dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, with Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

The third region, Entre-Deux-Mers, lies between both rivers and produces white wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle. Though technically in the left bank, it is worth noting the appellation of Sauternes, which produces arguably the world’s most famous sweet wines from Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, and Muscadelle as well.

Though many top Bordeaux wines are sold en primeur (in advance of their bottling) and often through a middleman known as a negoçiant, Kermit has always preferred to purchase directly from the winemaker. For more than three decades he has sought out small producers, who make classic Bordeaux wines and are willing to play outside the negoçiant system. This ethic has led to longstanding relationships, excellent prices, and perhaps most important—wines of great value and longevity.
