About Château Bellevue

Château Bellevue is situated at 95 meters above sea level offering a magnificent view of the surrounding landscape of the entire Entre-Deux-Mers. In the 19th century Stendhal referred to the region as the "Tuscany of Bordeaux". The property is located in the middle of a hilly, clay-limestone terroir called "Terrefort", so-called because it is difficult to work, the white clay being hard in summer and soft in winter.

About Light White

Light white wines are known for their dry and refreshingly tart flavour. Most light-bodied white wines are meant to be enjoyed young when they have maximum acidity and bold fruit.

These easy-drinking dry white wines are some of the most-sold wines in the world (even if red wines get more attention). Light whites are like the “beer of wine” and, for this reason, they are perfect to drink with most foods. Some of these wines are perfect for savory lovers (like Sauvignon Blanc and Grüner) with green herbal flavors of gooseberry and bell pepper.
