The 2015 Bellevue is energetic and nicely delineated, especially for such a powerful wine. Crème de cassis, lavender, mint and sweet spices fill out the wine's frame nicely. I very much like the sense of freshness that runs through some of the darker flavors. I expect the 2015 will drink well early. Today, it is super-impressive. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Bellevue is a pure Merlot picked on September 17, then a pause for two weeks before picking again from October 4-7. It has quite an intense bouquet with lovely floral tones, crème de cassis mixed with licorice, almost brine-like aromas. The palate is very smooth on the entry with good weight in the mouth, plush but structured underneath with fine tannin and precision all the way through to the minerally finish. This estate deserves greater attention. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2022-2045

A sexy and beautiful wine with incredible blackberry, dark chocolate and salt character. Full body, chewy and powerful. Great length. 100% Merlot. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Bought by Angélus a few years ago. Just above Angélus. Vibrant and big and crimson. Very vital and direct. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2022-2034

Part-owned by Angélus and one of the best ever from this château. 100% Merlot. Succulent fruit but fresh and lively with the limestone terroir apparent. Long, structured finish. Harmonious. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2035

The perfume of this wine is very appealing indeed - floral and sweet fruited. The palate is an oakier affair, with quite a bit of extraction and a firm finish, but the wine should harmonise during its elevage, given Hubert de Boüard’s track record here. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
