Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

17 JR

90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Very low yields of 18 hl/ha – each grape picked individually? Fermentation in temperature-controlled wooden vats. 13.8%. Dark but lively crimson. Enclave in Pavie Decesse. Just slight overripeness on the nose but lovely texture – very supple and with macerated mulberry character Opulent texture. Tarmacadam – very exotic – some freshness this year – much more approachable than most vintages because of the lift on the finish. - Jancis Robinson
 
This terroir is superbly situated between Beausejour Duffau and Beau-Sejour-Becot, with Angelus within shouting distance. Bellevue has been managed by Stephane Derenoncourt and Nicolas Thienpont since 2000, and when St.-Emilion does its next new classification (in 2016), I would not be surprised to see this estate upgraded to a premier grand cru classe. A blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc, cropped at a remarkably low 30-36 hectoliters per hectare, the 2006 represents the essence of terroir with its crushed rock/steely notes intermixed with flower, black raspberry, cherry, and blackberry characteristics. It is a full-bodied, dense, rich, powerful, moderately tannic offering with a broad texture, sensational purity, and an exceptionally long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025+. - Robert Parker
