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 :
The 2013 Belgrave has a light, rather stemmy/green nose that is missing the vigor of recent vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with a sour entry, bitter in the mouth with a sharp, dry finish. I find it difficult to find many redeeming features in what is usually a very upstanding Haut-Médoc and I put that down to the difficult growing season.
