Reviews for 2001 Bellevue Mondotte Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, January 2002
First year and a hell of wine. Like Vintage Port. Perhaps slightly overdone but impressive. Full-bodied with loads of fruit and tannins. Mouthpuckering but outstanding. A modern interpretation of an ancient style of wine... First year and a hell of wine. Like Vintage Port. Perhaps slightly overdone but impressive. Full-bodied with loads of fruit and tannins.

A blend of 90% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon (similar to Pavie-Decesse) it was cropped at a tiny 15 hectoliters per hectare enjoyed a seven week maceration period was aged in 100% new oak the first... A blend of 90% Merlot 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon (similar to Pavie-Decesse) it was cropped at a tiny 15 hectoliters per hectare enjoyed a seven week maceration period was aged in 100% new oak the first six months on its lees and bottled unfined and unfiltered after 24 months of aging. There are only 4500 bottles of this elixir. While not as complex or delineated as Pavie or Pavie-Decesse it is opulent even voluptuous with a heady perfume of ink black fruits truffles and lead pencil shavings. Full-bodied expansive and velvety-textured this huge sweet chewy St.-Emilion boasts great concentration and texture. Drink it during its first 15-18 years of life although my instincts suggest it will live a lot longer.
