Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2015
Made up of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the opaque bluish/purple 2005 from Bellevue-Mondotte offers amazing chocolate espresso notes along with blueberry and blackberry liqueur, some incense and a hint of flowers... Made up of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the opaque bluish/purple 2005 from Bellevue-Mondotte offers amazing chocolate espresso notes along with blueberry and blackberry liqueur, some incense and a hint of flowers. Full-bodied and staggeringly concentrated, this blockbuster wine (in a blockbuster vintage) is unreal. Talk about a wine that is beyond belief – this is a great achievement from Chantal and Gérard Perse. Drink it over the next 25-30 years. Sadly, there were only 340 or so cases produced. - Robert M.

The crushed blackberry and raspberry are wonderful in this wine. Full-bodied with superpolished tannins and loads of ripe fruit toasty oak and coffee on the palate. Goes on and on. An opulent young red. Best after 2016... The crushed blackberry and raspberry are wonderful in this wine.

The Château Bellevue-Mondotte 2005 is brutal and backward on the nose, but with aeration is gradually opens and displays more delineation and terroir expression than the Monbousquet. The palate is full-bodied and dense... The Château Bellevue-Mondotte 2005 is brutal and backward on the nose, but with aeration is gradually opens and displays more delineation and terroir expression than the Monbousquet. The palate is full-bodied and dense, assertive tannin although unlike the Monbousquet it is backed up by intense black fruit. It is a heady, at the moment quite oppressive Bellevue-Mondotte. In 10 or 15 years time it will either blow your socks off of leave you wondering why you didn’t buy the sumptuous Château Pavie '05.
