Château Bellevue was originally owned by the two families behind the famed Horeau-Beylot négociant house – de Conink and Pradel de Lavaux. However, in September of 2007, Chateau Angélus purchased a fifty-percent share of the company. Neighboring châteaux Angélus, Beaséjour Duffau-Lagarrosse and Beau-Séjour Bécot, this acquisition was based on the property’s vicinity, as well as its top terroir. But this purchase was already a previous dream of Maurice de Boüard de Laforest, in 1938 he had hoped to buy this estate and seventy years later his children and grand-children have realized his dream. Today, the de Lavaux family stills owns fifty-percent of the property. Together, the two families work side by side to produced incredible wines with the help of vinous experts, Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt.
