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.
