2012 Bellevue Mondotte

The “stunning, great” St Emilion Bellevue Mondotte 2012 is a very rare thing. Awarded 96 points by Parker and with production lower than Petrus or even Le Pin and it also looks an utterly compelling buy at such a low price.


Just 275 cases (of 12) bottles were made at this tiny estate in 2012. A miniscule amount that makes it one of the rarest wines produced anywhere in Bordeaux. Only a handful of cellars will contain a case or two of this, which makes it the sort of hidden gem that we love to hunt down for our clients.


It is more than worth the effort to seek out. Owned by Gerard Perse of Pavie fame, the wines are superb from this small patch of St Emilion and so strong in 2012 that this is considered “one of the superstars of the vintage” by Parker. It’s also one of the rarest and a great addition to the collection.

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%.| eRobertParker.com.April, 2015



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. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
