RUSTIC RED – classic bistro
Bellevue delivers a firm, workingman’s handshake. Dusty dry, rustic and delightfully old-fashioned – forget fruitiness, this tastes of the red wines I was drinking before Shiraz was born. Don’t even think of having it without meat of cheese. The Fronton region is north of Toulouse, in the south/west of France.
