It was in 2004 that Belle-Vue was acquired by the talented Vincent Mulliez, who unfortunately died prematurely in 2010. He will have had time to revitalize this remarkable set of properties both by rebuilding the cellars, partially replanting the vines and by setting up a new reinforced team, initially advised by Rémy Fouin. Continuing the work initiated by it, Vincent Mulliez will make Belle-Vue, one of the most prominent wines of Haut-Médoc in a few years. Today it is his wife who manages it, accompanied by his 5 children. The technical management of the property is entrusted to Vincent Bache-Gabrielsen and the consultant oenologist is Christophe Coupez.
Located in Macau, about fifteen kilometers north of Bordeaux and near
Margaux, the 11.8 ha vineyard extends over deep coarse gravel soils. The
original grape variety is made up of Cabernet Sauvignon (53%), Merlot
(27%) and Petit Verdot (20%), the latter late variety, which expresses
itself particularly well in South Médoc. The average age of the vines is
30 years, the oldest dating back to 1907. The planting density is 6,600
vines / ha. The cultivation is done with tillage and grassing for deep
rooting and follows the principles of reasoned control.
