Degustation notes

The domain is gaining momentum. After bottling, there was no doubt that the 2008 vintage would reap a "very good"". A wine that is balanced, compact in the mouth with good constitution, ripe tannins and floral hints at the finish with medium length fruitiness. A premise for elegance.

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.

    Eine Gaumenfreude - ob als Essensbegleiter oder pur - Purpurrote Farbe mit lila Rand, beginnend mit leicht bedeckter Frucht, dann folgen Duftnoten von Kirsche, grüner Paprika, vanilleartigen dezenten Holznuancen, zurückhaltende Süssholznoten, erdige Töne, zartsüss am Gaumen, angenehm feste Tanninstruktur.

    Sehr guter Bordeaux - Ein sehr genussvoller und komplexer Bordeaux - am Gaumen kräftig und elegant zugleich. Viel dunkle Beeren, etwas Kräuter und einen langen Abgang, sehr gut!
