Behold the majestic 2018 Bellevue Bordeaux Blend from the illustrious region of Saint Emilion in Bordeaux, France. This extraordinary red wine is crafted with precision and finesse by Bellevue, a renowned producer known for their commitment to excellence.

In the glass, the 2018 Bellevue showcases a deep garnet-purple hue that captures the eye with its allure. The nose is greeted with an enchanting bouquet of blueberry, plum, and praline, interwoven with enticing aromas of dark chocolate and cedar. Dried lavender dances delicately in the background, adding an extra layer of complexity to the olfactory symphony.

As the wine graces the palate, it reveals its full-bodied nature, embraced by firm, sleek, and caressing tannins. The polished and seamless layers of fruit and wood intertwine harmoniously, creating a sensory experience of pure elegance. The finish is undeniably long, leaving a lasting impression of class and sophistication.

James Suckling, esteemed wine critic, awarded this exceptional vintage a remarkable score of 95 points. He recommends indulging in this wine's splendor starting from 2026, allowing it to evolve and reach its full potential.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate also recognizes the brilliance of the 2018 Bellevue, bestowing upon it a score of 94 points. Made entirely from Merlot, this wine boasts a profound nose of plum preserves, blackberry compote, and stewed black cherries. Undertones of cedar chest, violets, aniseed, and iron ore further enhance its complexity. The medium to full-bodied palate captivates with energetic black fruits, framed by ripe and rounded tannins. The finish lingers with a delightful ferrous note.

The 2018 Bellevue continues to captivate wine enthusiasts and critics alike. Jeff Leve, from TheWineCellarInsider.com, describes it as "soft, silky, sexy, opulent," with layers of dark cocoa-covered black and red fruits, licorice, and smoke. He predicts this gem will provide an exceptional drinking experience for at least two decades or more.

Jeb Dunnuck, from jebdunnuck.com, praises the 2018 Bellevue for its purity, ripe tannins, and vibrant acidity. He suggests allowing the wine to mature for 2-4 years before indulging in its beauty, knowing that it has the potential to age gracefully for 15 years or more.
