Order the great wines of the Château Belgrave
The Château Belgrave is classified 5ème grand cru in the 1855 Bordeaux classification. The Bordeaux company Dourthe, which bought the château, immediately renovated the winery and its cellars. They also replanted abundantly the vines. In the mid-80s, the cult French oenologist Michel Rolland took care of the estate. The resulting increase in quality was dazzling.
Belgrave is located in Saint-Laurent, just outside the St-Julien appellation, and has 55 hectares of vines planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (20%) and Petit Verdot (5%). On average, it produces nearly 20,000 cases of wine per year. There is also a second wine, Diane de Belgrave, which made its debut in 1978. It produces about 8,500 cases a year. The second wine takes its name from Diane, the goddess of hunting, as a tribute to the estate's past when it was used as a hunting lodge in its formative years.
