Grapes: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

Color: Deep and concentrated in appearance.

Scents: The complex bouquet reveals dark fruit aromas of blackberry and cassis, precious woods and mint, enhanced with a subtle mocha note.

Palate: Initially velvety on the palate, the wine gains in body, with the very delicate and silky tannins adding structure. The wine is well-balanced and fresh throughout the tasting, and elegant until the lingering finish. Similar to Saint-Julien in style, Chateau Belgrave’s neighbouring vineyard.

The great wine of the property is Château Belgrave, classified 5th Grand Cru Classé in 1855. Thanks to the studies carried out on the property to understand the behaviour of the vine according to the nature of the subsoil and its water supply, the Château Belgrave team has acquired a perfect knowledge of the vineyard. The viticultural work, associated with reasoned protection, as well as the harvest have been adapted to this cartography. The wine expresses all the finesse and personality of this great terroir. Dense and deep, it is distinguished by its ageing capacity, its aromatic complexity and its very Saint-Julien character.
