Amazing dark-berry and black-cherry aromas with hints of black truffles and oyster shell. Full-bodied, super layered and rich with amazing density and texture. Like the richest velvet. Last for minutes. Drink in 2024.

(JD95-97 points) Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2015 Bellevue Mondotte is ripe, incredibly sexy 2015 based on 90% Merlot and 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. This opaque, glass staining effort offers terrific notes of cassis, blackberry liqueur, and smoked herbs, as well as lots of minerals and floral character, full body, and an elegant, seamless texture that keeps on going. This gorgeous, layered, multi-dimensional beauty will benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for 2-3 decades.

(JL94-96 points) Inky in tint with oyster shell, florals and black and blue fruit perfume, this wine is a bit like Beyonce -- incredibly rich, lush, sensuous and polished with a blast of ripe, dense fruits in the finish.

Inky blue/purplish fruit, graphite, menthol, licorice, plum and crème de cassis infuse the sumptuous Bellevue Mondotte, which is remarkably nuanced for such a potent wine. Despite its considerable intensity, the 2015 packs a real punch, especially in its searing tannins. Readers will have to be patient with this muscular wine. I can't wait to taste it in another handful of years. The blend is 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from 50-year-old vines. Yields were 20 hectoliters per hectare.

(WS91-94 points) A lush, modern style, with plum sauce and raspberry påte de fruit flavors backed by a broad swath of melted red licorice and sweet spice notes. Features the caressing feel of the vintage as well. - JM

This powerful wine is big, bold and rich. It has serious tannins along with superripe Merlot. The acidity and the berry flavors are almost buried in the structure. It will develop into a rich, balanced and dense wine... This powerful wine is big, bold and rich. It has serious tannins along with superripe Merlot.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Bellevue Mondotte is a little youthfully closed, revealing subtle suggestions of plum preserves, blackberry pie and cherry compote plus an undercurrent of violets, mocha and black soil. The full-bodied palate is firm and rugged, packed with taut, muscular fruit and finishes long and earthy. Give it a good 5 years in bottle, at least, and drink it over the next 25+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown
