Winery's Notes: "We bought this estate in spring 2000. The vineyard is entirely planted with a high density of 7000 vinestocks 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 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."
