Château Bellevue Mondotte Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion Grand Cru 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :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.

This is really beautiful, with crushed blackberry and plum. The nose is intense. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and an aftertaste of berry, new oak and light earth. Best after 2012. 460 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Bellevue Mondotte 750ml

Almost black. Aromas of crushed grapes and coffee follow through to a full-bodied palate, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Lovely. A little softer than Pavie. Score range: 92-94 (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2004 Bellevue Mondotte 750ml
