Chateau Laplagnotte-Bellevue, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 1995

Small chateau of 6.09Ha owned by Henry and Claude de Labarre – both with long winemaking resumes - since 1990. It lies 3 km north of Saint-Émilion.

Since purchase organic principles are followed, with more recently a move into biodynamic methods - the 2017 vintage the first to be certified by Demeter. They plough the vineyard which is composed of Sandy clay with traces of iron pan.

Laplagnotte Bellevue is a blend of Merlot 75%, cabernet franc 25% with average vine age of 30 years.

Fermentation carried out in thermo-regulated concrete tanks. Malolactic fermentation in concrete vats. Ageing in oak for 12 months, with 25% new oak barrels.

On the nose rich red fruit, a hint of sous bois. Crème de cassis, dark chocolate, and spice on a palette of some purity. Soft but firm tannic structure.

Ready to drink now.
