(JS94-95 points) The quality of tannin here is really exceptional with ultra-fine tannins and beautiful length. Blackberry and blueberry. Love it.

(WA92-94 points) The 2015 Bellefont Belcier is a blend of 68% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon cropped at 39 hl/ha. Matured in 80% new oak, it has a sweet, ripe black cherry and boysenberry nose. At the property, the nose showed a little blowsiness, though subsequent samples exuded much more freshness. There is a touch of shoe polish here. The palate is dense and balanced with fine tannins and well-judged acidity. The palate has much more to offer than the aromatics and the lascivious finish is both harmonious and sensual, a touch of spice lingering on the aftertaste. This is a very well-crafted Saint Emilion with panache and class. - Neal Martin

(JL92-94 points) With a distinctive floral nose, coupled with truffle, thyme and dark red fruits, this wine is fresh and lush with round, polished tannins in the rich finish.

(JL92-94 points) With a distinctive floral nose, coupled with truffle, thyme and dark red fruits, this wine is fresh and lush with round, polished tannins in the rich finish. This is a major step up for Bellefont Belcier. From a blend of 68% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, the alcohol reached 15%, with no sensation of heat. The harvest took place between October 1 and October 14.

(AG90-93 points) The 2015 Bellefont-Belcier is bold, powerful and intense, with plenty of black cherry, mocha, smoke, licorice nuances.

(AG90-93 points) The 2015 Bellefont-Belcier is bold, powerful and intense, with plenty of black cherry, mocha, smoke, licorice nuances. The style is quite virile and imposing, yet all the elements are in the right place. This is an especially deep Saint-Émilion, with its typical notes of gravitas very much in evidence. There is certainly plenty of personality here. Tasted three times.
