The tannins are unmistakably layered, and this will age exceptionally well and take its time to soften. It goes long on fruit and on grippy acidity, and there is an austerity on the attack that softens into a graphite-led mid-palate. There was still 2% cabernet franc in the vineyard at this point, but it was not used in the blend. A highly enjoyable wine. 60% new oak.

The estate is situated on the slope opposite Angélus. This wine's tannins are firm but well integrated into the crisp Merlot fruit. The depth and complexity of this wine will allow it to age well. Drink from 2026.

Medium to full-bodied with firm, rounded tannins and vibrant fruit expression lifted by a lovely line of freshness, it finishes on a minerally note. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown collapse

Blackberry, raspberry and boysenberry fruit is stitched together by a refined chalky structure. The long, focused finish ripples with understated energy. Best from 2023 through 2035. — J.M.

The palate is medium-bodied with raspberry pastille, graphite and cedar notes, more masculine than expected with fine delineation on the finish. Perhaps this is a little more forward than I anticipated after tasting from bottle 12 months ago, but it remains a well crafted Bellevue. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin collapse
