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.

One of the most impressive, sexy, opulent wines in the vintage, it boasts a saturated purple color as well as heavenly notes of crème de cassis, blackcurrants, smoked earth and chocolate. The quintessential Saint Emilion, with almost overflow fruit, full body, and a powerful, concentrated style, give bottles a handful of years in the cellar and drink it over the following 2-3 decades.

There is a purity of fruit here, that you cannot help but be wowed by. The wine is powerful, big, concentrated and takes over your palate. Yet, it is in perfect balance, which is hard to figure out how they managed to do...   There is a purity of fruit here, that you cannot help but be wowed by. The wine is powerful, big, concentrated and takes over your palate. Yet, it is in perfect balance, which is hard to figure out how they managed to do that. The wine sticks with you for close to 50 seconds. . Read more at:https://www.thewinecellarinsider.com/wine-tasting-note/?vintage=2015&wine=Chateau%20Bellevue%20Mondotte

This is the epitome for me of a good Perse wine - powerful, muscular and masculine. It's not restrained, but the limestone manages to claw its way through, making its mark in terms of a balanced freshness. Rich, round, deeply coloured and fleshy. 80% new oak, reduced to this level around five years ago.

(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

A loamy hint gives the fruit-laden finish spine, while the ganache edge keeps pace as well. For fans of the style. Best from 2020 through 2030. 333 cases made. — JM
