An extraordinary effort in this vintage, this 2008 was made from lower yields than the 2010 (the 2008's equaled 20 hectoliters per hectare) and is a blend of 90% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon that came in at 14% natural alcohol. Michel Rolland has been the consultant for all the Perse estates since their acquisition, and the 2008's fruit was harvested very late, October 20.
The result is a backward, dense purple-colored wine revealing a crushed rock-like liqueur along with highly extracted, massive flavors of black currants, sweet cherries, licorice and toast. This full-bodied effort requires 5-6 years of bottle age and should last for 25-30 years.


Bellevue Mondotte is Gerard Perse's smallest estate...but only in size! He fell in love with this vineyard at first sight, and in 2001 purchased the property which is just several vines distant from Pavie and Pavie-Decesse. It is a little jewel that is but 2 hectares in size, situated on excellent terroir at the summit of Saint-Emilion's famous limestone plateau.
