Château Bellefont-Belcier Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2005
Editorial Reviews for Château Bellefont-Belcier Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru
Dark, dank nose opens with tons of used coffee grind, some dried chili, fire pit and caramel nuances. With air aids some thyme like herb but remains coffee dominated. Full bodied in the mouth with lowish acidity and tons of tannin at first. The core of cherry fruit eventually asserts itself and comes to dominate the midpalate though with a slight medicinal edge that carries through to the shortish finish which also features notes of ginger and red floral tones. Lots of extract and somewhat drying this does have rich red cherry fruit but the package is not what I look for in Bordeaux. 90/100
Realy dark red, there's a lot of black fruits, little smoke scent and flavor, spices and a long finish. Need air to be appreciated to its potential (4 to 6 hours..). Tasted twice with consisting notes.

Good deep red-ruby. Currant, smoke and roast coffee on the expressive nose. Suave and sweet, with a fine-grained texture and enticing inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of redcurrant and tobacco. Finishes with fine tannins and very good length. Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Bellefont Belcier 750ml
