Chateau Bellevue Mondotte is a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, whose 2-hectare vineyard is partly enclosed within Chateau Pavie Decesse.
This Saint-Emilion wine is made from a terroir located on the clay-limestone plateau of Saint-Emilion, 80 meters above the Dordogne Valley. The vines are 64 years old on average, and benefit from an ideal southern exposure, sloping soils that provide an excellent natural drainage and a vineyard that is not prone to frost due to its geographical location.
Vinification and aging
The grapes are harvested by hand on October 4th and are rigorously sorted before being vinified. Alcoholic fermentation is carried out in temperature-controlled wooden vats. Malolactic fermentation is carried out in barrels, as is aging (90% new barrels and 10% second fill barrels) with a final blend just before bottling.
Chateau Bellevue Mondotte 2021 is a 100% Merlot.
