Château La Croix Bellevue (Lalande-de-Pomerol)
This was added to the family’s vineyards in the spring of 2000, it sits on gravelly slopes with south exposure facing Pomerol on 12.5 acres. The vineyard has a high density where debudding, thinning of leaves, and green harvest occurs. The harvest is performed manually to ensure optimum maturity of the Cabernet and perfect sorting of the berries. The wine ages 14 months in oak barrels, 50% new French oak. This is a wine most typical of a Medoc wine in character as it is blended with 25% Cabernet as well as 25% Cabernet Franc and 50% Merlot. 2,000 cases produced.
