Unquestionably the best example of Bellisle-Mondotte (which lives in the shadow of its neighbor La Mondotte) I have yet tasted the 2005 exhibits a deep ruby/purple color along with sweet black fruit notes interwoven with new oak licorice and loamy soil undertones. Medium to full-bodied moderately tannic fresh lively and vibrant it will provide enjoyable drinking over the next 15 years.</P>

Has licorice blackberry and mineral character on the nose. Full-bodied with very well-integrated tannins and a seamless tannin structure. Balanced and refined. Very pretty. Best after 2013. 1830 cases made. -JS

(an 80/20 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon planted on colder clay and chalk soil not far from Troplong-Mondot) Good ruby-red. Precise savory aromas of cassis black cherry licorice and spicy oak. Concentrated and fine-grained but the rich black fruit flavors are also juicy precise and cool. The only question mark for me was the wine's finish which showed rather strong and slightly dry oak tannins and suggestions of chocolate and char. 87-90? points
