Description

Tasting Note:  Very, deep and concentrated in appearance. The complex bouquet harmonises well with the elegant, intense dark fruit flavours and spicy, liquorice notes. Powerful and full-bodied from the outset, the wine gains in length on the palate, while its core is packed with fruit and tobacco notes. The wine coats the dense, fine-grained and silky tannic structure to perfection, and culminates in a lengthy, aromatic finish. Exquisite harmony defines this wine and once again reflects the distinction and elegance of Chateau Belgrave, Medoc Cru classé." -  Frédéric Bonnaffous, DOURTHE ESTATES DIRECTOR.
