Extremely perfumed with lots of cabernet character, such as flowers and blackcurrants. Full body, a pretty core of fruit and very polished tannins that fold into the fruit. Extremely well crafted. A blend of 69 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 28 per cent merlot and three per cent petit verdot. Needs two or three years to come together. Try after 2022.

Barrel Sample. This is an opulent wine, packed with ripe fruit, sweet tannins and ample acidity, all in balance. The wine is full and juicy, with great spice at the end. The finish is firm while still reveling in fruitiness.

Rouge grenat aux reflets violets. Bouquet élégant, complexe, marqué par la fraîcheur du Cabernet Sauvignon. Agréables notes de cassis, de bois de réglisse et de menthe poivrée. Au palais la mise enbouche est subtile, fruitée et juteuse. Le vin se révèle lentement en laissant apparaître ses tannins tardivement en fin de bouche. Ils sont de pair avec la structure qui offre de la race et de la fraîcheur. Belgrave 2016 souligne la grandeur du millésime et rappelle qu'un grand vin a souvent besoin de temps… c'est son cas ; il est grand, jeune, et beau ! Il faudra savoir patienter. 2023-2041 94/100

Beau vin complet, notes de cèdre proches d’un saint-julien, la forme est onctueuse.

Even though it’s technically in the Haut-Médoc, Belgrave is as good as many of the classedgrowths that surround it. It’s a serious, stylish, well-structured red with fresh, leafy CabernetSauvignon at its core, textured tannins and understated concentration.

Deep in color with licorice, cigar box and blackberry, this wine has plenty of crisp, sweet, dark red fruits and tannins in the finish – clearly a contender for the best vintage Belgrave has ever produced. 90 – 92 Pts

Investments at this property have increasingly paid off over recent vintages. This is brooding and a little subdued at the moment, but is packed with Médoc signature delivered in a subtle but enjoyable manner. It has a cedar sweetness and ripe blackberry fruits with a pulse of acidity, and is well held together. 50% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot.Drinking Window 2024 - 2040

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate
The 2016 Belgrave is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot and was picked from 28 September until 20 October. It has a generous bouquet with small dark cherries, blueberry and crushed violet aromas, quite Margaux-like in style. There is certainly good intensity here. The palate is medium-bodied with a supple opening: blackberry, mint and cedar. From the start there is fine tension and there is very impressive structure towards the finish, plus a long saline aftertaste. This is a very strong follow-up to the 2015 Belgrave and indeed, it may surpass it.
