Château Bellevue Mondotte

  • Bordeaux


Located in the heart of the Saint-Emilion appellation is the small wine estate Château Bellevue Mondotte. The second part of its name is an homage to its prestigious neighbours, La Mondotte and Château Troplong-Mondot. Although this 2.5-hectare vineyard remained unknown for a long time, Gérard Perse, owner of Château Pavie, saw its potential. He purchased the Château in 2001 and vinified his first vintage, which was rated 95/100 by Robert Parker.  The vineyard overlooks the Dordogne Valley. Thanks to its southern exposure, it receives an excellent amount of sunshine, and its slope allows for natural drainage. The estate has one of the lowest yields of any Right Bank Bordeaux wine estate due to green harvesting and a careful selection of grapes. It is with rigour, passion, and care that Gérard Perse and his team continue to preserve and showcase Château Bellevue Mondotte’s terroir.  Château Bellevue Mondotte has a great finesse with aromas of ripe red fruits and strawberry coulis. The tannins give it a particular body, with a balance between freshness and ripe fruit.
