Château Bellevue La Forêt 2020

This is a grape that is new to me, Negrette described as a rustic grape from the South of France, so I decided to give it a while … Dak in color with a mild cherry nose. On the mid palate the wine displays candied dark cherry notes, leaning more towards black fruits. On the lighter side of medium in length the wine displays some mild black licorice, dark chocolate and coffee undertones along with milder acidity/tannins. The dark fruits to my tastes leaned almost a bit towards a malbec in flavor. I can’t say I loved this wine, but I’m also hard pressed to say I hated it. I can say, I won’t rush back for more. I’d say 87-88. From the LCBO web site, check stock:
