Grand Cru Classé

Saint-Emilion

The Wine Advocate – 94-96+/100
The 2019 Bellevue Mondotte is a blend of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, harvested on the 5th of October. The yields this year were 18 hectoliters per hectare, and the alcohol came in at 14.81%, while the pH was 3.50 (remarkably low!). Very deep garnet-purple colored, it comes bounding out of the glass with exuberant black cherry preserves, blueberry compote and boysenberries scents plus hints of wilted roses, cumin seed, aniseed and cardamom. Full-bodied, the palate has fantastically ripe, silky tannins and gorgeous freshness supporting all that perfumed black and blue fruit, finishing long and harmonious.

Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 96-98/100
The 2019 Pavie-Decesse is off the charts brilliant. Blueberry jam, graphite, menthol, licorice, espresso, lavender and cloves are some of the many nuances that unfold in a statuesque Saint-Émilion of dizzying scale. Big, brawny and powerful, the 2019 is going to require years in bottle to blossom, but it is immensely promising and very clearly a great wine in the making. Yields were just 17 hectoliters per hectare. Sadly, production is down about 40% because two parcels are being redeveloped. The use of only the healthiest parcels most likely explains why Pavie-Decesse is so exceptional in 2019. Henrique Da Costa, Gérard Perse’s son-in-law, explained that while 2019 was hot and dry, conditions were not extremely hot. Cool temperatures in the evenings provided respite from the daytime heat, while water reserves in the soils from the wet spring allowed the vines to avoid stress. As for the wines, they are superb across the board. Most of the attention will naturally center on Pavie, but the entire range is terrific.
