External Reviews for Bellevue Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Monbazillac
Powerful aromas of coffee, licorice and blackberry follow through to a full body, with soft, velvety tannins, a long, flavorful finish and a mineral, chocolate and aniseed aftertaste. Has a balanced, caressing texture. Best after 2012. 1,875 cases ma... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Bellevue 750ml
The 2005, a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, is a wine for true connoisseurs. It possesses a dense purple color to the rim along with a huge perfume of camphor, charcoal, graphite, blackberries, cassis, raspberries, and a liqueur of rocks-like component. Super-concentrated with chewy richness as well as enormous tannins, it, along with Ausone and Clos de Sarpe, may be St. Emilion's most backward wine. More of a long distance runner, it will provide little near-term pleasure.
