Château Belgrave Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

A bit muted on the nose, subtle floral and meaty tones – moderately rich, a touch drying, big structure, lots of ripe tannin, extracted but not overdone, powerful mid-palate, savory finish, good length, dark, meaty fruit (89-90)



Ausserordentlich gut gelungener Wein. Von sehr dunkler Farbe, mit schwarzen Kirschen, Cassis und Röstaromen im Bouquet. Aromatisch im Gaumen, voll und ausgewogen, mit weichen Gerbstoffen. Langer angenehmer Abgang. Wird bereits früh Freude bereiten.
