Château Bellevue was founded by Michel & Catherine Lydoire in 1998, with the estate’s oldest vines dating to the 1960's. To access the estate, you embark on a drive through the middle of a diverse landscape of vines and forests. When you arrive, you will understand why the winery is called Bellevue, which means “nice view”. The vineyards are located in the Fronsac valley where you find a richer soil composed of sand and clay. The vineyards are sustainably farmed and indigenous yeasts are used for fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Merlot matures perfectly here and Bellevue produces a fruity-style Bordeaux.
