(JS98-99 points) This has a focus and intensity that I haven’t seen before. I goes wide in the palate and then compresses with great precision and beauty. Full and excellent. So great. Best I ever had from here.

(AG93-96 points) The 2015 Bellevue Mondotte is, as always, the most massive and virile of the Perse wines. A vertical spine of tannin gives the Bellevue Mondotte its distinctive personality, even if the richness of the vintage has softened some of the contours just a bit. A host of dark, balsamic-inflected notes hit the palate first. Black cherry, plum, crème de cassis, smoke and grilled herbs are pushed forward. Intense veins of chalk salinity extend the mid-palate into the long, beautifully articulated finish. Bellevue Mondotte tends to get lost in the Perse lineup, perhaps because this is the family's smallest site, but it is superb. The blend is 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from 50 year-old vines. Yields were 20 hectoliters per hectare.

TheWineCellarInsider.com, August 2016
(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.
WS 94
Wine Spectator, April 2016
(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

(WA91-93 points) The 2015 Bellevue Mondotte is the one wine from Gérard Perse that tends to leave me cold. This year it is a blend of 90% Merlot with 5% each of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, matured entirely in new oak. It has a very powerful and intense bouquet with sweet ripe blueberry, boysenberry jam and honey-like aromas that almost knock you sideways. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe tannin, not as tannic or as aggressive as I have occasionally discerned this wine, a little gentler and caressing towards the velvety smooth finish that just needs a little more personality to come through. It is always a brute out of barrel, but tends to mellow with bottle age, so don't even think about approaching this young. While it is undoubtedly surpassed by the 2015 Pavie, I am fascinated to see how this shows with age and who knows, maybe I will be proved wrong. - Neal Martin
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast, April 2016
(WE90-92 points) This is a juicy wine that is light and fruity. It has some structure although that is lost in the general welter of red fruits. It is a wine for medium-term aging.
