Chateau Belgrave 2003
|Region||Bordeaux, Haut Medoc|
|Label||Slightly Bin stained|
Readers should take note of this Medoc classified growth whose quality is on the rise after an infusion of capital by its owner, the huge negociant firm of Dourthe. Strong aromas of creme de cassis intermixed with hints of herbs, licorice, damp earth, and barrique jump from the glass of the dense purple-hued 2003. One of the finest Belgraves produced in many years, it possesses a supple, fleshy mid-palate, sweet tannin, and fine purity as well as texture.
Winespectator / James Suckling (88)
Some berry and tobacco character with medium body, firm tannins and a delicate finish. Pleasant wine.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 17/20 points.
