Château-Belgrave Haut Medoc 2008

SKU chatbelgrv


Intense, deep garnet-red in appearance. The bouquet, revealing a harmony of cherries, blackberries and raspberries, with delicate toasted and vanilla notes. On the palate, the expressive tannins, powerful yet silky, reflect controlled extraction. The finish is unctuous and reveals the generous character of this vintage. The freshness, finesse and elegance, very much Saint-Julien in style, make this Belgrave wine a true success.

Wine SpectatorBlackberry, chocolate and tobacco flavors have good density in this fresh, balanced red, which is juicy, with bright acidity and a floral, minerally finish. Fruity, but has depth. Drink now through 2017.

Wine Enthusiast86-88 Barrel sample. Totally dominated by wood, the fruit doesn't have the weight to support all that toast. It's hard to get beyond the spice to find the berry fruits and final fresh acidity.
