60% Cabernet Sauvignon; 40% Merlot.

Château Belgrave, located in the Haut-Médoc appellation, is a distinguished Grand Cru Classé wine estate recognized in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. The estate spans 59 hectares of deep gravel soil with a clay subsoil, ideal for growing high-quality grapes. The vineyard's grape varieties include 50% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 4% Petit Verdot. Managed by Dourthe since 1979, Château Belgrave has undergone significant renovations to both its vineyard and winemaking facilities, ensuring top-notch production standards.

James Suckling: 94-95/100
This is very structured and solid with a pretty center-palate of fruit and chewy tannins. Medium- to full-bodied with cool blue fruit and mineral undertones and some stone character. Well done. Better than 2022.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous: 91-93/100
The 2023 Belgrave is a stellar wine and one of the sleepers in this vintage. Rich and layered in the glass, with terrific persistence, the 2023 has so much to offer. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha, spice and new leather all meld together in this wonderfully expressive, nuanced Haut-Médoc. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot with no Petit Verdot in this vintage. The 2023 is a very fine mini Saint-Julien of sorts, and I mean that in the best sense of the term. Tasted two times.

Jane Anson: 91/100
Firm tannic structure, textured slate and rose bud adding savoury character and punch, plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit, soft through the mid palate but this is unfussy and well made. 30% new oak for ageing.
