Made under the guidance of Hubert du Bouard, this blend of primarily Merlot and a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc (around 9%) from the limestone soils on the hillsides of St.-Emilion exhibits a dense purple color, lots of chalky minerality and a big, sweet perfume of boysenberries, blackberries, licorice and burning embers. It is full-bodied and opulent with an abundance of fruit, glycerin, power and silkiness. Some tannins lurking in the finish suggest a half dozen years of cellaring will be required. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2035. - Robert Parker

Blackberry, with spices such as nutmeg and cloves follow through to a full body and fine tannins, with sweet fruit. Balanced and delicious. Best in 2017. - James Suckling

The 2009 Bellevue is conspicuously deeper in colour than its peers with less ageing on the rim. The bouquet is quite generous with scents of Indian ink and blue fruit infusing the intense red fruit aromas, hints of sandalwood and sage emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, quite saturated tannin, and the acidity well judged. A very sweet, almost Châteauneuf-like finish detracts from typicity. This is a thoroughly enjoyable Bordeaux, but not intellectual. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting.
