Chateau Bellevue Bordeaux Superieur 2011
This Bordeaux Superieur , come from a soil of clay called "terrefort". These earths are very white clays because of their limestone content. In winter they are as soft as butter, and in summer they are as hard as stone. It is for this reason that they bear the name of "strong lands" or terrefort.
Maturing 18 months on fine lees, for a part in French oak vat, for one part in stainless steel vats, for another half-muid (barrels of 500 liters). This particular vinification is thus carried out to give these structured wines round, a good capacity for aging. The marriage of the tannins of wine and wood tannins, forms new tannins longer and more complex, that the "consume" and the natural micro oxygenation of the wood come to improve.
