Degustation notes

Dunkles Granatrot, intensive, beerige Nase, daneben viel Röstaromen, am Gaumen recht kerniges Tannin, die Frucht im Moment etwas im Hintergrund, kein gefälliger Wein, sondern ein extraktreicher Charakter der etwas Zeit braucht bis zum 1. Trinkgenuss.

Special notes

The Château Belgrave is a known wine-growing domain in Bordeaux. Given the rank of Cinquième Grand Cru during the 1855 ranking, it covers 60 hectares on a parcelle of land with only one tenant. The soil is a thick layer of gravel over a base layer of clay. 49% ofthe area is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc, with 3% Petit Verdot that was added with the new plantings. The harvest is manual and the grapes are sorted on a conveyor belt before fermentation conducted in stainless steel vats and, most recently, wood barrels. The wine is aged in barrels for 12 to 16 months.
