2019 vintage. Tasted alongside Poujeaux 2019, this Belgrave seems more powerful and more extracted. More gentle extractions seem to suit the vintage better, therefore I rate the Poujeaux a little higher. But this is still a very good wine and terrific value as it is dumped in supermarkets at 20,90 euros. They don't seem to have much faith in their Grand Cru Classé status...

Vintage 2014 | deep colour. smell with laurel, hint of chocolate, predominantly cherries. not very complex but certainly comforting. and á Point but with still some tannins. Paired with beef.

‪This Chateau Belgrave 1945, from a half bottle with a lower mid-shoulder level, was simply one of the most enjoyable wines I’ve ever had. Absolutely stunning; smokey, aged tobacco leaves - like a cigar shop in Havana. Lovely acidity, and phenomenal length! What a vintage:-D‬

Wow, wow, wow. It's like your Moms hugs and whopped cream. Really, this is good Bordeaux at a very decent price. Deep, rich and super long finish. BRING ON THE BORDEAUX!

There is not a 2010 Bordeaux that I have drunk that I did not like! And this beauty was singing, which is amazing, because it is so young. Impressive for an Haut-Medoc. This property is right by Lagrange in St Julien, but for half the price. This wine has everything a Bordeaux lover wants, complex notes of cigar box and graphite, rich black currant jam, solid grip and nice tension from lots of acidity.
