Tasting Notes

Chateau Bellegrave's responsiveness during the harvest, coupled with rigorous sorting during blending enabled them to produce a very fruity, attractive wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, which constitute the majority at the estate, were ripe and with sufficient structure to provide great balance.
