93-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine starts almost sweet and then blossoms into a balanced palate, with great acidity as well as rich black fruits. It is structured and firm while also having a crisp aftertaste."
94+ points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "Produced from 100% Merlot, the 2015 Bellevue gives up a deep garnet-purple color and quite an earthy/savory nose with tilled soil, charcuterie and roasted nut notions over a core of plum preserves, black forest cake and licorice plus hints of tar and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied with firm, rounded tannins and vibrant fruit expression lifted by a lovely line of freshness, it finishes on a minerally note. Drink: 2021-2039. (Feb 2018)"
93 points Decanter: "Part-owned by Angélus and one of the best ever from this château. 100% Merlot. Succulent fruit but fresh and lively with the limestone terroir apparent. Long, structured finish. Harmonious."
93 points Wine Spectator: "Blackberry, raspberry and boysenberry fruit is stitched together by a refined chalky structure. The long, focused finish ripples with understated energy. Best from 2023 through 2035. (3/31/18)"
