ABOUT THE WINE
Chateau Bellegrave lies in the south of Pauillac, between Chateau Latour, Pichon-Longueville and Lynch-Bages. Formerly the property of the late Mr Armand Roux, the estate was purchased in 1901, by his business partner and sole heir, Mr H. Van-Der-Voort, a trader in San-Francisco. It was in 1997 that Mr J.P Meffre, already the owner of Chateau Du Glana and Chateau Lalande in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, bought it. Originally from the Comtat Venaissin in the Vaucluse region of south-eastern France, it was in 1954 that Gabriel MEFFRE, a renowned nurseryman in search of places to sell his plants, discovered the Medoc and bought several estates in Saint-Estephe, Pauillac and Saint-Julien.
Dark in colour, with a lovely concentration of blackberry, black liquorice and dark currant on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with ripe tannins and a coffee, berry and fruit finish.
Great with roasted meat, steak, ragout pasta.
Love it all year long. Try decanting for 40 mins to make sure all aromas are free.
