Decanter: Quite smoky nose and richness of fruits shows the proximity to St-Julien. There’s a certain earthiness and good tannins. A very good, solid wine; fine future. 90 Points

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: Plump and soft-edged, with cherry and blackberry notes lined with light cedar and tobacco hints. 87-90 Points
Ratings
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Belgrave has a vivacious bouquet with cedar and cigar box-infused black fruit that really leaps from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, plenty of blackberry and crushed strawberry fruit with fine mineralité coming through on the finish. This is a very fine 2015 from this Haut-Médoc estate. Drink 2018-2032. 90 - 92 Points
Awards
Jancis Robinson: Very very intense dark crimson. Very fresh and vital. Clearly lots of work has gone into the Dourthe flagship. Smooth as satin but with good dry vitality. Really racy. Drink 2023-2032. 16.5 Points
Production Notes
Belgrave is situated in Saint-Laurent, which is just outside the St-Julien appellation, and there are 55 hectares of vineyards, planted with Cabernet-Sauvignon (40%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The wine is matured in oak barriques, 50% new, for between 15 and 18 months. Belgrave produces sleek, stylish and harmonious clarets that, while difficult to resist when young, amply reward cellaring for up to 10 years
