Tasting Notes
Technical Details

Opaque purple-black colored, the Bellegrave Pauillac sashays out of the glass with alluring scents of crushed raspberries, kirsch and fresh blackcurrants plus hints of dried mint, incense, cloves and cedar chest with a touch of lavender. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is jam-packed with fresh, crunchy black fruits, framed by firm, grainy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing long and lively.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, & Cabernet Franc grape blend.
This wine contains allergens, sulfites.


The Estate

Situated in the Northwest section of the commune of Pomerol, Chateau Bellegrave is seven hectare of gravelly, sandy soils with only small amounts of the coveted rich clay. The result is a softer, more elegant, feminine Pomerol with great finesse, rather than a blockbuster, according to owner Jean-Marc Bouldy

Wine Making

Château Bellegrave is located in Pauillac in the Northern part of Bordeaux. It is surrounded by prestigious Grand Cru Classés neighbours such as Château Latour, Château Pichon-Longueville or Château Lynch Bages. It was formerly the property of Armand Roux before it was purchased by his business partner, M. H. Van-Der-Voort in 1901. In 1997, Jean-Paul Meffre, already owners of Château du Glana and Château Lalande in Saint-Julien, purchased the estate. It is currently managed by his grandsons, Julien and Ludovic Meffre.

James Suckling – 93

"Aromas of plums and berries with bark and light chili undertones. Medium body with round tannins and pretty balance. From organically grown grapes."

Wine Enthusiast – 92

"This dense wine showcases Cabernet Sauvignon, with rich black-currant fruits and dense, still young tannins. The wine has great potential, with its structure and layers of acidity in the background."

Jeb Dunnuck – 92

"2018 Château Bellegrave offers a darker slant in its black cherry and blueberry fruits as well as notes of damp earth, spring flowers, and violets. This carries to a rich, medium to full-bodied Pomerol with a rock star of a mid-palate, loads of rich, opulent fruit, ripe tannins, and a great finish. This ripe, hedonistic beauty stays nicely balanced and has the pure, lively style of the vintage front and center. It's well worth seeking out and should keep for 10-12 years, most likely longer."
