Critic Notes

Belgrave is a classified growth in all but name, producing wines that are rich, structured, complex and age worthy. This is floral and dense, built around a core of minerally, graphite-scented Cabernet. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028

Score: 92-/100Tim AtkinDrinking Window: 2020-2028

The 2015 Belgrave has a vivacious bouquet with cedar and cigar box-infused black fruit that really leaps from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, plenty of blackberry and crushed strawberry fruit with fine mineralité coming through on the finish. This is a very fine 2015 from this Haut-Médoc estate. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2018-2032

Quite smoky nose and richness of fruits shows the proximity to St-Julien. There's a certain earthiness and good tannins. A very good, solid wine; fine future. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2035

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Belgrave has a nose of crushed black currant, chocolate-covered cherries, warm plums and lilacs with touches of garrigue and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied with firm, ripe, grainy tannins and wonderfully pure black fruits with lovely floral accents, it finishes long and perfumed. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com

Score: 90-/100Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Very very intense dark crimson. Very fresh and vital. Clearly lots of work has gone into the Dourthe flagship. Smooth as satin but with good dry vitality. Really racy. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2023-2032

Score: 16-/20Jancis RobinsonDrinking Window: 2023-2032

Plump and soft-edged, with cherry and blackberry notes lined with light cedar and tobacco hints. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

2014: THE F+R PICKS. SMITH-HAUT-LAFITTE
They know what they’re doing at Smith-Haut-Lafitte. This is one of the few properties in Bordeaux that really engages with the end customer, and one that is particularly aware of the commercial realities of what they are making. The Cathiards, owners since 1990, have a clear ambition - to be the best - and they are well on this road. ...

Haut-Brion 2009: Double Magnums & Imperials
Robert Parker calls this 100 point scoring Haut-Brion 2009 "one of the most compelling examples of Haut-Brion ever made" and we have a handful of exceedingly rare 3 and 6 litre formats available...
