The 2014 Chateau Belgrave has a straightforward but pure bouquet with blackcurrant and raspberry coulis. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet plummy fruit, moderate acidity, though the finish feels slightly over-extracted and therefore is missing just that bite and race you are looking for. This is a well-made Belgrave wine to enjoy over the next decade.
The Chateau Belgrave 2014 has a dark and concentrated in appearance. The complex bouquet is bursting with harmonious notes of cedar, liquorice and mint, and develops notes of dark fruits, of cherry and blackcurrant. Creamy and velvety on the attack, the wine is enshrouded in a concentrated, smooth tannic structure. The intensity of the subtle vanilla-edged fruit accompanies the lengthy finish of this Château Belgrave with its typically Saint-Julien-esque elegance.
