Bellevue Mondotte 2008

Chateau Bellevue Mondotte

9 years

An extraordinary effort in this vintage, this 2008 was made from lower yields than the 2010 (the 2008's equaled 20 hectoliters per hectare) and is a blend of 90% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that came in at 14% natural alcohol. Michel Rolland has been the consultant for all the Perse estates since their acquisition, and the 2008's fruit was harvested very late, October 20. The result is a backward, dense purple-colored wine revealing a crushed rock-like liqueur along with highly extracted, massive flavors of black currants, sweet cherries, licorice and toast. This full-bodied effort requires 5-6 years of bottle age and should last for 25-30 years.

Chateau Bellevue Mondotte

Chateau Bellevue Mondotte is a small wine growing estate based in Saint Emilion, in Bordeaux, France. A mere 2.5 hectares in terms of vineyard size, the output of the winery is accordingly sparse.

 

Chateau Bellevue Mondotte was acquired by Gerard Perse in 2001, who is also the owner of the esteemed Chateau Pavie. As a result of the harvesting techniques used to produce bottles of this highly regarded fine wine, Chateau Bellevue Mondotte has one of the lowest yields from all the right bank wine estates; roughly 15 hectoliters per hectare.

 

The fine wine of Chateau Bellevue Mondotte is a powerful wine; many describe it as intense and rich in flavor and substance. The vines are around 45 years of age, planted with 90% merlot, and 5% each of cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon.
