Dark in color, you find all the tobacco, cigar box, wet earth, cedar and peppery scents needed to create the nose. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, round and fresh, delivering a boatload of ripe, juicy blackberries and cassis. This is a supple-styled Belgrave that one should age for at least 5-7 years and enjoy over the next 15-20 years with ease. 91-93 Pts

Charming, old-school claret with a light, rose hip tea color. The nose exudes strawberries, dried flowers, cedar, tobacco and peppery cassis. The palate is light,and high-toned, with raspberries, strawberries and bright currants with an herbal accent. This is a lighter-styled classic Left Bank Bordeaux that served blind, I thought it was from the 70s. Drink from 2024-2026.
