Super-ripe red cherry, plum, rose petal, licorice and blood orange infuse the 2014 Bellevue-Mondotte with notable unctuousness and sweetness. Powerful, rich and inviting, the 2014 is a flamboyant, exotic Saint-Émilion that will drink well with minimal cellaring. As always, Bellevue-Mondotte is the most accessible of Gerard Perse's three flagships. The 2014 is 90 % Merlot, 5 % Cabernet Franc and 5 % Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 spent 34 days on the skins, followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel. New oak is 100 %.

Opulent aromas of blackberries, black mushrooms and cedar. Full-bodied and chewy yet this remains fresh with dark chocolate, berries and lovely acidity. A little tight now with the firm tannins — so give it three or four years to soften.
