Wow. This really excelled in 2016 with so much intensity and focus. Dark berry and floral character. Full and tight. Superfine tannins. Excellent. Mar 2017, www.jamessuckling.com
Almost opaque in color, the wine is smoky, floral and fruity. There is a profundity of flavor, purity of fruit, freshness and complexity. From a blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, the alcohol reached 15% with no sensation of heat. The harvest took place between October 11 and October 22. This wine is a big step up for the estate and is clearly the best wine they have ever produced. Apr 2017, www.thewinecellarinsider.com
The 2016 Bellefont Belcier is blended of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. It was aged for 20 months in 80% new and 20% in one-year-old barrels. Michel Rolland consults for this wine. Deep garnet-purple in color, it gives delicate dried flowers, garrigue, dusty soil and smoked meats over warm black plums and blackberry preserves with hints menthol. The palate is full-bodied, concentrated and muscular with a rock-solid structure and loads of layered black fruit in the mid-palate, with a lingering earthiness to the finish. 5,000 cases produced. Nov 2018, www.robertparker.com
The 2016 Bellefont Belcier is a blend of 65% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon matured in 80% new oak. It has a satisfying if not sensational bouquet that does not quite get to grips with its propitious terroir as I was hoping. This came across as a little muted perhaps. The palate is sweet and velvety on the entry with a fine bead of acidity. It gathers pace, gaining more intensity towards its spice-tinged finish with a hint of graphite courtesy of the Cabernet Sauvignon, although I was seeking a little more length on the aftertaste. There is certainly good aging potential here, and I suspect that it will come together nicely once in bottle. Apr 2017, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2023-2040
Very deep crimson. Intense, alluring nose with masses of ripe fruit. 11% Cabernet Sauvignon! (72% Merlot). Very exciting wine. Fills all the palate and has tannins in abundance but lots of sumptuous fruit too. Needs time. Apr 2017, www.jancisrobinson.com, Drink: 2028-2042
Bellefont-Belcier is superb in 2016. An exotic mélange of graphite, gravel, smoke, cured meats and inky dark fruit hits the palate as this virile, potent Saint-Émilion shows off its personality. The 2016 has been impressive on the three occasions I have tasted it so far. Vibrant, lifted and exuberant, it possesses striking aromatic brilliance to play off the rich, dark flavors. Beams of supporting tannin and acidity give further drive. This is an impressive showing. Michel Rolland is the consultant. Tasted three times.
Cleanly extracted with fresh, bright but intense berry fruits, this has a nicely judged oak influence. A little sweet perhaps on the final flourish, but this holds its nerve through the mid-palate and is a good showing. Blend of 72% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon. Apr 2017, www.decanter.com, Drink: 2027-2042
This is a fruity, juicy wine, with soft tannins as well as a touch of toast. It has an immediacy to it, thanks to the forward fruit and generous tannins. At the same time, there is a core of dry structure that will allow it to age. Apr 2017, Roger Voss, www.wineenthusiast.com
