Chateau Bellegrave Pauillac 2016

Tasting a Château Bellegrave first and foremost means enjoying a fine Bordeaux. However, it is also an encounter with a land and vines that have found their soul and the ability to express themselves naturally, without artifice, fashion or sectarianism. The wine is elegant. It is beautiful. 

Tasting Notes 

Medium-bodied, fresh, bright, juicy red currant, cedar, tobacco and plum filled wine. The tannins have just enough snap and bite giving you a rustic nature, but not overly so. This well-priced Pauillac is already easy to drink. 

Chateau Bellegrave is usually better with at least 3-5 years of bottle age. Of course, that can vary slightly, depending on the vintage character. Chateau Bellegrave should offer its best drinking and reach peak maturity between 7-15 years after the vintage.

Grape: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc

Ageing: 12 months in oak barrels. 

Best served with: Chateau Bellegrave is best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Bellegrave is also good when matched with Asian dishes, rich fish courses like tuna, mushrooms, and pasta.
