Bellevue Mondotte 2010 (750ML)
"""The wine is not as powerful as one might expect, given the owners and winemaking team, coming in at 14.3%. A sensational, rather massive example for a 2010, this opaque purple wine offers up notes of subtle barbecue smoke, blackberry and cassis as well as a hints of lead pencil shavings and a confiture of red and black fruits in the mouth. Full-bodied, unctuously textured and excruciatingly tannic, this is a big, blockbuster style of wine meant for 10-50+ years of cellaring...95+"" WA 02/13"
This just takes off with amazing combination of dark fruits and insane acidity. Citrusy and wild. Full bodied and powerful yet it's delicate and finesse. Owner Gerard Perse calls it sweet power! I agree...95-96 JS 04/11
This sports the ample, fleshy, powerful core of the vintage, with dark blue and black fruits, but has extra drive, with mouthwatering acidity and lots of minerality cutting through on the finish. Shows great mouthfeel and purity.93-96. WS 4/11.
