Tasting Notes and Scores
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 30/04/2008
An impressive effort from this Haut-Medoc property, the 2005 Belgrave possesses a deep ruby/purple color as well as notes of damp earth, cedar, herbs, black cherries, and currants, good acidity, moderately high tannin, an admirable, layered texture, and fine purity and overall balance. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2022.
-Parker's Wine Buyer's Guide No 7
Less impressive from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2005 Bellegrave reveals a deep ruby color along with sweet aromas of black cherries, mocha, dried herbs, and a touch of earth. Medium-bodied and fruit-forward, with good acidity, smooth tannin, and an easy-going personality, it will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 10-12 years. (89)
The Château Belgrave 2005 has a slightly rustic nose compared to others with mulberry and damson infused with Provençal herbs and scorched earth aromas. This is quite exotic on the nose, but just lacks a little class. The palate is better than the aromatics: grainy tannins, broody black fruit with a wild mushroom seam. Nicely structured with a delicately spiced, prune-tinged finish. Drinking lovely now but will keep for several years more.
Dark red; fine, sweet, early bouquet, cassis and mineral; rich middleweight wine, fresh and finely tannic; crisply sweet in fruit, a nice gentle fleshiness and complexity, and excellent length. A most satisfying lesser Classed Growth. Juicy and delicious, and with lovely length. Now – 2025
