Description

“Amazing dark-berry and black-cherry aromas with hints of black truffles and oyster shell. Full-bodied, super layered and rich with amazing density and texture. Like the richest velvet. Last for minutes. Drink in 2024.” James Suckling

“Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2015 Bellevue Mondotte is ripe, incredibly sexy 2015 based on 90% Merlot and 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This opaque, glass staining effort offers terrific notes of cassis, blackberry liqueur, and smoked herbs, as well as lots of minerals and floral character, full body, and an elegant, seamless texture that keeps on going. This gorgeous, layered, multi-dimensional beauty will benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 2-3 decades.”

“A neighbor of Pavie Decesse, this vintage is composed of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in 100% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Bellevue Mondotte is a little youthfully closed, revealing subtle suggestions of plum preserves, blackberry pie and cherry compote plus an undercurrent of violets, mocha and black soil. The full-bodied palate is firm and rugged, packed with taut, muscular fruit and finishes long and earthy. Give it a good 5 years in bottle, at least, and drink it over the next 25+.” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“This powerful wine is big, bold and rich. It has serious tannins along with superripe Merlot. The acidity and the berry flavors are almost buried in the structure. It will develop into a rich, balanced and dense wine. Drink from 2026.” Wine Enthusiast

“A rich and concentrated style, with a mocha and ganache frame that melds slowly but steadily into the core of steeped plum and black currant paste flavors. A loamy hint gives the fruit-laden finish spine, while the ganache edge keeps pace as well. For fans of the style. Best from 2020 through 2030.” Wine Spectator

“A Gérard Perse (Pavie) property. Only 2ha. Dense, sweet and powerful. Tight and firm on the finish. Minerality shows. One for the cellar.” Decanter
