This evening I read the very sad news that the energetic owner of Belle-Vue, De Gironville and Bolaire died at the age of 44. Unbelievable. Mulliez has done an incredible job improving the quality of these wines over the last - more or less - six years.
I have been working with Château Belle-Vue since I started my import in 2008, and later also with Château Bolaire. In July 2009 I have visited Mulliez, about which I wrote on this blog. Jane Anson reports about Mulliez' death on Decanter.com.
