Even in a vintage such as 2003 there are wines that are youthful, unevolved and still in need of bottle age. The 2003 Bellevue Mondotte is one of those wines. From a tiny (5 acres) estate owned by Gerard Perse, this blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits youthful aromas of blue and black fruits, chalk dust, lead pencil shavings and Christmas fruitcake. Full, ripe and moderately tannic, it requires another 3-5 years of bottle age and could turn out to be one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage, lasting another 25-30 years.

Tasting note


The 2003 Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte is a testament to the timeless elegance of Saint-Emilion Grand Cru. As it approaches its twentieth year, this wine has gracefully evolved, casting aside its youthful oakiness to reveal a symphony of ripe, lush fruits, underscored by notes of crushed stone, smoke, licorice, and succulent black cherries. With a full body and moderate tannins, it is recommended to decant for two hours to fully appreciate its complexity. Perfectly paired with roasted lamb or beef bourguignon, this wine will continue to enchant for years to come.
