Flaschenbewertung (Mai 2015):
"The smallest of the Perse estates, this tiny property situated on pure limestone produces a wine made from a blend of 90% Merlot and the rest equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the superstars of this vintage, the 2012 is opaque purple and exhibits tremendous concentration and richness, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a layered texture that builds incrementally without any heaviness or cloying characteristics. This is stunning, great, old-style, yet progressively made Bordeaux to drink over the next 25-30 years. The alcohol level is 14.3%."

The 2012 Bellevue Mondotte may turn out to be just as powerful and exquisite as the 2010, perhaps even superior to that beauty. This full-bodied super-star of the vintage boasts deep notes of graphite, creme de cassis and blackberries as well as a full-bodied, viscous texture, a huge mid-palate (atypical for a 2012), and a whopping amount of fruit, glycerin and tannin in the finish. However, the tannins are ripe and remarkably well-integrated. Sadly, this amazing effort is extremely limited in production. It should drink well for 20-25 years. A small, 5-acre jewel of an estate planted with 90% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this property, which sits next to La Mondotte, hit 14% natural alcohol (just below the 14.3% achieved by their 2010).
90 % Merlot, 5 % Cabernet Franc, 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon. 22 hl/ha. Extrem dunkles Purpur mit lila und violetten Reflexen. Reife, schwarze Pflaumen, kalter Kaffee, dunkle Edelhölzer und Guiness-Malznoten im Untergrund. Im Gaumen extrem konzentriert, aber die massiven Tannine haben eine gewissen Schmelz, Schwarzschoko-Bitternoten im Extrakt, extrem lange. Während der Pavie-Decesse gewisse Fragen aufwirft, ist das ein fraglos grosser Wein. Hier liegen 19/20 bei Flaschenreife drin.

Smell of chalk and minerals with dark fruits follow through to a full body, with chewy tannins and structure and a long finish. Bitter chocolate and dark fruits. 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
