The inky/blue/purple-colored 2009 Bellevue Mondotte offers aromas of creme de cassis mulberries licorice white flowers forest floor and candied cherries. Extremely thick rich and full-bodied it is nearly overwhelming in its textural richness colossal concentration and mind-blowing finish that lasts nearly a minute. Undeniably massive and over-sized but perfectly balanced it is made for those looking for something to put away for 30-50+ years. One has to admire a proprietor who is making a wine for the history books not for near-term gratification.

Breathtaking aromas of crushed blackberries dark chocolate and cassis. Full-bodied with big and velvety tannins and intense fruit. Long finish. Massive. But polished and very balanced.

But polished and very balanced. Could prove to be the best of the Perse wines in 2009. Score range: 95-98 -JS

Superripe slightly inky aromas of blueberry liqueur and violet. Like liquid silk in the mouth but with surprisingly firm acidity leavening the wine's sweetness and giving shape to its blue and black fruit flavors. A compellingly rich thick wine with palate-staining length and the tannic clout to support at least a couple decades of positive evolution in bottle.

The wine at this point is a bit restrained and backwards but very pure. Aromatically there are really appealing scents of fresh loamy earth and creme de cassis. The wine's presence on the palate is full bodied layered with lots of tannic structure. Tasted three times.
