Rival Bellevue Bordeaux Superieur is a charming Merlot dominated blend with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. It is soft, ripe, well-structured and dominated by luscious wild berry fruit along with the perfect balance of toasty flavours, liquorice and spicy oak. It is a delicious glass of wine at a modest price. The magnums work perfectly for Sunday lunch!
Rival Bellevue is made at Chateau La Verriere by owner and winemaker Alain Bessette who is the fourth generation of his family to make wine at Chateau La Verriere. He is a talented man and his name is always on the short list for the ‘Talents de Bordeaux Superieur’ every year. The estate now convers 75 hectares and farms with a sustainable approach. It is located in Landerrouat in the far east of Entre-Deux-Mers, near the Dordogne region. Alain also keeps bees and makes a cracking honey!
