100 points "100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The inky/blue/purple-colored 2009 Bellevue Mondotte offers aromas of creme de cassis, mulberries, licorice, white flowers, forest floor and candied cherries. Extremely thick, rich and full-bodied, it is nearly overwhelming in its textural richness, colossal concentration and mind-blowing finish that lasts nearly a minute. Undeniably massive and over-sized, but perfectly balanced, it is made for those looking for something to put away for 30-50+ years. One has to admire a proprietor who is making a wine for the history books, not for near-term gratification." (02/2012)" Best 2020-2060

95 points "95 points Wine Spectator: "A very dark, almost brooding style, with loads of ganache, espresso and roasted fig aromas and flavors, backed by extra notes of black forest cake, warm currant preserves and melted black licorice. There's a gorgeous polished feel despite its heft, with a purity buried deep on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 415 cases made." (06/2012)" Best 2014-2015
