The 2015 Bellefont-Belcier is bold, powerful and intense, with plenty of black cherry, mocha, smoke, licorice nuances. The style is quite virile and imposing, yet all the elements are in the right place. This is an especially deep Saint-Émilion, with its typical notes of gravitas very much in evidence. There is certainly plenty of personality here. Tasted three times. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Bellefont Belcier is a blend of 68% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 39 hl/ha. Matured in 80% new oak, it has a sweet, ripe black cherry and boysenberry nose. At the property, the nose showed a little blowsiness, though subsequent samples exuded much more freshness. There is a touch of shoe polish here. The palate is dense and balanced with fine tannins and well-judged acidity. The palate has much more to offer than the aromatics and the lascivious finish is both harmonious and sensual, a touch of spice lingering on the aftertaste. This is a very well-crafted Saint Emilion with panache and class. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2030

The quality of tannin here is really exceptional with ultra-fine tannins and beautiful length. Blackberry and blueberry. Love it. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

The only Grand Cru Classé bought by a Chinese investor. Very rich and sweet on the nose. Opulent. Sufficiently fresh. Interesting wine! Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2032
