Domaine Bellevue is a family-owned estate growing vines and making wines for four generations. The vines are approximately twenty-five years old. Situated on the slopes of the right shore of the Cher Valley, the vineyard is settled on a light siliceous stony ground and clayey-limestone subsoil. Patrick Vauvy took over the family Domaine in 1991 after studying viticulture and oenology at agricultural college.
This crisp, dry Sauvignon has lovely aromatics with an intense grassy-lemon nose, a supple palate and delicate flavours of gooseberry with subtle touches of green apple, kiwi, passion fruit and pineapple to delight the palate and engage the senses. It is well-balanced with a long, pleasing finish.
