HAUT-MEDOC Rouge (Red)

Print the sheet

Ownership & history:

Both Château de Gironville and Château Belle-Vue were bought by Vincent Mulliez in 2004. He then made huge investments in the infrastructure and built up a highly skilled team. The resulting wines exude quality and have established an international reputation for excellence.

Vineyard & location:

The estate is located in Macau in the heart of the Médoc, near to the village of Margaux. Consequently the vineyard has a number of prestigious neighbours, such as Châteaux du Tertre and Giscours.

Harvest, vinification & ageing:

Blackcurrant, wild cherries, cedar and liquorice aromas emerge from a dense, refined, tannic body. A long, creamy finish with black pepper notes thanks to the Petit Verdot grape.


The grapes are picked by hand. Cold prefermentation lasts for twenty days, extracting the primary fruit aromas. There is a long maceration (35 days) in stainless steel vats. The malolactic fermentation is partially carried out in barrels for a smooth integration of the wine with the oak. Finally, the wine is aged for fifteen months in oak barrels before bottling.
