More About This Wine
89-92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013
Saturated ruby. At once bright and ripe on the nose, showing oak-driven aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice, all lifted by a perfumed violet note. Then bright and creamy on the palate, with plush flavors of sweet dark fruits and spices. Finishes with harmonious building tannins and lingering notes of violet and cocoa. This struck me as one of the least over-extracted Bellevue-Mondotte wines in memory, and it has gained in accessibility and balance as a result.
