2011 Château Belle-Vue
|Grapes||Merlot, Cab Sauv|
The Boutros family released their first vintage in 2002, working on a 59-acre estate in the foothills of Mount Lebanon. A blend of 60 percent merlot and 40 cabernet, fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, it ages in French oak barrels for two year. The result is spicy and earthy, the fruit clearly warm-climate in its dark, mulled berry flavours, yet impressively fresh and vibrant in its acidity. It lasts with a floral spice. L&S (Sep 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Situated 16 kilometres from Beirut in the area known as Mount Lebanon, Château Belle-Vue is owned and run by Naji and Jill Boutros. Having left Lebanon for London at the age of 17, Naji gained qualifications in electrical engineering followed by time in New York working as an investment banker. He and Jill lived in London for 10 years, before returning to Naji's childhood village in Lebanon in order to initiate a project which could help revive a deflated local community. In the spring of 2000, the first vines were planted, and Chateau Belle-Vue was born. Naji and Jill employ local craftsman, and donate $1 per bottle sold to fund scholarships for needy children at the village school. A minimum of ten students each year are directly impacted by this contribution.
