The smallest of the Perse estates, this tiny property situated on pure limestone produces a wine made from a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the superstars of this vintage, the 2012 is opaque purple and exhibits tremendous concentration and richness, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a layered texture that builds incrementally without any heaviness or cloying characteristics. This is stunning, great, old-style, yet progressively made Bordeaux to drink over the next 25-30 years. The alcohol level is 14.3%. - Robert Parker

A young red with coffee, chocolate, red chili and berry character. Chalk and salt flakes. Full body, velvety tannins and a long and flavorful finish. Super focused for the vintage.

Super focused for the vintage. The 90% merlot shows itself. But truly a top wine for the vintage. Try in 2017.

It is also the least accessible of the wines today. A firm spine of tannin gives the Bellevue-Mondotte much of its personality. Black cherry, smoke, licorice, tar and graphite all take on shades of virility in a wine endowed with vertical structure and pure power. Gérard Perse made just 4,000 bottles from Bellevue-Mondotte, a tiny two-hectare vineyard on Saint-Emilion's clay/limestone plateau. The 2012 is a magical wine, but it will require considerable patience. The blend is 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a stunning wine from Gérard and Chantal Perse and their long-time winemaker Michel Rolland.

Dark, with fig, boysenberry and raspberry fruit melded together, while smoldering charcoal and warm ganache accents fill in the background. A roasted apple wood note gives the finish spine. Very solid. Best from 2016... Dark, with fig, boysenberry and raspberry fruit melded together, while smoldering charcoal and warm ganache accents fill in the background. A roasted apple wood note gives the finish spine. Very solid. Best from 2016 through 2022. 275 cases made.
