Notes
Saturated ruby. Very dark aromas of black fruits, violet, licorice and bitter chocolate, plus a sexy oak note of hickory smoke. Large-scaled, thick and sweet, with outrageous breadth for the year. Finishes with mouthcoating tannins and palate-staining black fruits. For all its sweetness and size, this wine manages to maintain impressive verve. (I should note that an earlier sample was at least as rich but more porty and roasted, with a distinctly unrefined character. Obviously, my score is for the better sample.)

Château Bellevue Mondotte

Château Bellevue Mondotte

Bellevue Mondotte, perhaps more than any other estate epitomises the garagiste movement. Consultant Oenologist, Michel Rolland along with propriétaire Gerard Perse fashion unashamedly modern, inky, Merlot dominated wines from this excellent limestone terroir. The secret as with all the Perse wines in low yields, typically below 20hl/ha and aging in 100% new oak. The results are not for everyone, but American uber-critic, Robert Parker is certainly a fan, regularly awarding this estate scores in the high 90s.
