Château Bellisle Mondotte Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2009

Château Bellisle Mondotte is not an estate I am familiar with, but the wine here is a good one.  It's from the grandiose sounding Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation.  The 2009 vintage is a deep intensity ruby in colour, with medium, almost left bank Bordeaux style, aromatics of blackcurrant, cedar, anise, tobacco and wood spice.  The palate is elegant with dry with resolved tannins, with tobacco, blackcurrant and cedar flavours evident, and a medium length finish.  Overall, this is a very balanced wine with nice length and nice fruit.  Lovely.  Good
