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.
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
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.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, deer, venison, and poultry dishes.
