Bellevue Mondotte 2013

Chateau Bellevue Mondotte

4 years

This is a magnificent property and terroir, but so little of this cuvee is made that few consumers ever get a chance to sample it. A blend of 90% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2013 Bellevue Mondotte (13.3% natural alcohol) is a star of the vintage. It boasts a deep purple color as well as sweet black cherry and black currant aromas intermixed with licorice, graphite, powdered rock and baking spices, super richness, medium to full body, pure flavors and admirable texture as well as equilibrium. Interestingly, the pH is low (3.37) for a Gerard Perse (the proprietor) wine, which no doubt accounts for the higher acids in 2013. Drink it over the next 12-15+ 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.
