Wine Advocate

91-93 Points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Bellefont Belcier delivers profound notions of warm plums, baked cherries and mulberries with hints of spice cake and underbrush. Full-bodied, rich and decadent, it has a rock-solid backbone of rounded tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy. Aging is in progress for an anticipated 20 months in 40% new, 40% one year-old and 20% two year-old barrels. The blend is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon." 4/19

Neil Martin

92 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous: "The 2018 Bellefont-Belcier has quite an intense nose of predominantly black fruit plus graphite and sage. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, quite compact at the moment and probably closing in after bottling. But there is plenty of freshness here and it feels very harmonious, if slightly “playing it safe” on the finish. Cellar for several years." 03/21

Vinous Media

90-93 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2018 Bellefont-Belcier is dark, powerful and quite brooding, but also noticeably less extracted than in the past. Succulent dark cherry, plum, violet, lavender, graphite and spice all infuse this savory, virile Saint-Émilion. All of the signatures are in place, but delivered with more nuance than was once the case. Consulting winemaker Thomas Duclos has ushered in quite a change at the property in his first vintage here. Tasted three times " 4/19
