Dourthe has leased Château Belgrave since 1979. A preliminary phase consisted of returning to this prestigious classified growth its style and status and creating a wine worthy of its name. Now that Dourthe has confirmed its commitment in 2000 for another 25 years, it is entering a second stage, involving significant investment and with the ambitious aim of making Château Belgrave a benchmark for the region, expressing more conclusively the exceptional potential of its terroir.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
From another of the estates owned by the Dourthe family, the 2012 Belgrave is straightforward, medium-bodied, has adequate fruit, but finishes abruptly, with some hollowness and leanness. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.
