Château Belgrave (magnum) 2005

Haut-Medoc AOC 5eme Cru Classe

Château Belgrave’s rise has been meteoric since the Dourthe family took over in 1979. A refurbishment of both cellars and vineyards has ensured great wines. This mellow 2005 is a tribute to the exceptional quality of the vintage and a fine estate.

This former 18th century hunting lodge and ornate château lies on the edge of Saint-Julien. No wonder, then, the wines of Belgrave have a similar richness and finesse, but just beyond the boundary, offer good value. The estate was adopted by the Dourthe family in 1979, who have transformed it. Refurbishment of the cellar and a restructuring of the property’s extensive vineyards were the start. 2005 is one of the top years this century, producing wines with both glorious ripe fruit and ageing potential. Aged in fine French oak barriques for 14 months, this Cabernet-based wine has layers of complex, mature fruit and subtle spice, all with delicious length. Stand upright for a few hours to allow any sediment to settle. Ideal served with game.

"A solid effort. Classic Médoc notes of tobacco leaf, unsmoked cigars, spice box, blackcurrants" Robert Parker
