A little gem of an estate owned by the Perse family, the 2011 Bellevue Mondotte is composed of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. This super, highly concentrated wine (please don’t make the mistake of saying “over-extracted” as there is not a bit of bitterness to be found) is the product of tiny yields and a late harvest. A thick, port-like, black/ruby/purple color is followed by a powerful, rich, exceptionally pure wine with stunning balance. From a vintage where most wines will need to be consumed within their first 15-20 years of life, this cuvee will undoubtedly last 30 or more. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

Picked on 27th September, the Bellevue Mondotte has a sensual bouquet with ripe saturated black cherries, crème de cassis and blueberry that is unashamedly opulent, especially for the vintage. The palate is full-bodied with firm grip, great depth, quite tensile tannins and great precision on the finish. Modern in style (of course) but I like the focus here and the minerality on the finish. Very fine. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

This is concentrated and very tannic. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins. Seems slightly hollow in the mid-palate. But should be outstanding. jamessuckling.com

This is not shy, with clearly extracted fig, boysenberry and plum fruit flavors that are liberally laced with blueberry pâte de fruit, cassis and ganache. The long finish lets the toast and spice pyrotechnics play out, with a saturated yet driven feel. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Still on calcaire plateau. Two hectares of old vines. Dark and rich and pure. Lots of oak but texture more silky than the Pavie Decesse. Needs a lot of time but it isn't bitter or hard. Just very dense and dark and not ready. jancisrobinson.com

Deep in color with flowers, stone, blackberry liqueur, coffee, caramel, plum, chocolate mint and smoke, the wine is fleshy, big, dense and concentrated with layers of ripe dark berries. There is a lot of tannin, minerality and oak in the finish. This wine will require time to develop and come together.

This is a powerful wine with great ageing potential. It has 14.5% alcohol and amazing weight and intensity. This is a big ripe style with chewy, thick tannins that requires patience. Bellevue Mondotte is a small 2 ha property planted with 90% Merlot. AsianPalate.com
