Château Crabitan Bellevue 2013


Château Crabitan Bellevue 2013
AC Sainte-Croix-du-Mont
This was an excellent year, combining great ripeness with freshness.  For the first time, Nicolas made a blend of his  best cuves of oak-aged and the unoaked wines.  We are in no doubt that this is the best wine that we have ever tasted at Crabitan.  Even better than their glorious 1985 – which still is magnificent.
Light gold in colour, on the nose there are citrus notes with hints of marmalade and honey. It is concentrated yet very elegant, with flavours of honey, confit lemons and frangipani , finishing with clean acidity and great length.
This will go perfectly with most desserts, but they are also superb with cheese. Finally, you can take a leaf out of the French book and enjoy them either as an aperitif or with Foie Gras.
