Winemaker Notes

Châteaux Bellevue is barrel-aged for six months on its lees (100% new oak) for a total of approximately 24 months. Final blending takes place just before bottling, and the wine is neither fined nor filtered.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
The Wine Advocate

A spectacular garagiste effort from a five-acre, 45-year-old vineyard (90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon), the 2004 Bellevue Mondotte was fashioned from yields of 15 hectoliters per hectare. The result is an opaque purple-colored wine of provocative richness and intensity with an extraordinarily thick, juicy style, and unbridled amounts of creme de cassis, black cherry liqueur, a structured minerality, and sexy, toasty new oak. This full-bodied, powerful, extravagant, fascinating St.-Emilion is nearly over the top. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, and tipping the scales at nearly 14% natural alcohol, it should drink well for 20-25 years.

Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte
Until recently, tiny Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte, nestled on the Pavie plateau, was virtually unknown by wine connoisseurs. The size of the vineyard - just 2.5 hectares - was undoubtedly the main reason for this involuntary anonymity. However, the second part of the chateau's name, reminiscent of its famous neighbors La Mondotte and Chateau Troplant-Mondot, gives us an idea of Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte's exceptional terrior.
