Critical Acclaim

JS 94
James Suckling
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.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Very lush, with a long stream of succulent blackberry, fig and boysenberry compote notes that drape over a polished structure. A graphite edge buried on the finish lends balance, but this is all about fruit. Drink now through 2028.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Bellevue Mondotte was quite a difficult wine to pin down out of barrel (as is often the case, truth be told). Now in bottle, it displays a very voluminous and generous bouquet with ample black cherries, crème de cassis and vanilla pod aromas, the new oak still very much evident. The palate is full-bodied with thick chewy tannin that exert a vice-like grip in the mouth. This must be the most powerful and intense Saint Emilion of the vintage: heady, hedonistic, opulent and perhaps a bit garish. Yet there is purity here and the oak is in sync with the fruit. You can feel some warmth on the finish, but it conveys a sense of focus. It is dwarfed by the 2014 Pavie, but those that like "a lot of wine in their wine" will prefer the Bellevue Mondotte.
WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is a rich jammy wine. Great black fruits and dark tannins are mixed with touches of chocolate and bitter coffee. It is dense, although with the acidity of the year it has a crispness that contrasts with the richness. Drink this ripe wine from 2026.

Chateau Bellevue Mondotte, France
Chateau Bellevue Mondotte Winery Image
Until recently, tiny Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte, nestled on the Pavie plateau, was virtually unknown by wine connoisseurs. The size of the vineyard - just 2.5 hectares - was undoubtedly the main reason for this involuntary anonymity. However, the second part of the chateau's name, reminiscent of its famous neighbors La Mondotte and Chateau Troplant-Mondot, gives us an idea of Chateau Bellevue-Mondotte's exceptional terrior.

St-Émilion Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Marked by its historic fortified village—perhaps the prettiest in all of Bordeaux, the St-Émilion appellation, along with its neighboring village of Pomerol, are leaders in quality on the Right Bank of Bordeaux. These Merlot-dominant red wines (complemented by various amounts of Cabernet Franc and/or Cabernet Sauvignon) remain some of the most admired and collected wines of the world.

St-Émilion has the longest history in wine production in Bordeaux—longer than the Left Bank—dating back to an 8th century monk named Saint Émilion who became a hermit in one of the many limestone caves scattered throughout the area.

Today St-Émilion is made up of hundreds of independent farmers dedicated to the same thing: growing Merlot and Cabernet Franc (and tiny amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon). While always roughly the same blend, the wines of St-Émilion vary considerably depending on the soil upon which they are grown—and the soils do vary considerably throughout the region.

The chateaux with the highest classification (Premier Grand Cru Classés) are on gravel-rich soils or steep, clay-limestone hillsides. There are only four given the highest rank, called Premier Grand Cru Classés A (Chateau Cheval Blanc, Ausone, Angélus, Pavie) and 14 are Premier Grand Cru Classés B. Much of the rest of the vineyards in the appellation are on flatter land where the soils are a mix of gravel, sand and alluvial matter.

Great wines from St-Émilion will be deep in color, and might have characteristics of blackberry liqueur, black raspberry, licorice, chocolate, grilled meat, earth or truffles. They will be bold, layered and lush.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
