Ratings and Tasting Notes:

(WA=91+) Made from 100% Petit Verdot coming from vines planted in 1936, 1940 and 1950, the 2018 Petit Verdot by Belle-Vue was aged for 14 months in oak, 20% new, and has 14.5% alcohol. Deep garnet-purple coloured, one swirl sets off an eruption of red and black fruit preserves scents, featuring stewed blackberries, kirsch and black raspberries, leading to an undercurrent of dark chocolate, unsmoked cigars and dusty soil. The medium-bodied palate is delicately crafted and refreshing, revealing intense, wonderfully pure red and black fruits with an approachable, grainy texture, finishing long and perfumed. This is a seriously interesting expression that should drink best in a year or two then should cellar gracefully over 15+ years.

(AG=89) The 2018 Le Petit Verdot by Belle-Vue is plump, juicy and dangerously delicious. Inky red fruit, blood orange, herbs, incense and liquorice all open in this succulent, inviting red from Belle-Vue. In 2018, the Petit Verdot is not quite as varietal as it can be, but there is good savoriness, energy and complexity.

(JS=88) Sort of odd, but intriguing with green coffee-bean and fruit aromas and flavours. Medium body, firm tannins and a juicy and lightly earthy underlay to finish. 100% Petit Verdot. Drink or hold.
