Other Reviews....
The 2022 Belgrave is a bold, powerful Haut-Médoc. Grilled herbs, gravel, leather, tobacco and game add quite a bit of savory complexity. Big, imposing tannins add to an impression of virile intensity. In 2022, the winemaking team opted to co-ferment some lots, using Merlot to soften some of the formidable Cabernet Sauvignon tannins. Yields were less than 30 hectoliters per hectare, low for the estate's historical standards. A recent bottle of the 2010 was incredibly youthful. Tasted two times.

Black berry, blackcurrant and crushed stone aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Creamy, velvety tannins.

James Suckling

Juicy, forward, bright and vibrant this has a great energy straight away, crisp and tannic, but well integrated so you get almost a bouncy palate with flint edges giving minerality and acidity providing the lift. Feels detailed and precise, lovely definition to the overall frame and this carries to a long finish. Impressive, I like the strength and the focus and it doesn't feel overripe or too extracted. So much to like about this wine with subtle liquorice, mint and crushed stone aspects. This will be excellent. HVE3 certified. Ageing 12 months in 29% new oak barrels, 6 batches in amphora. Harvest 12 September - 1 October. Tasted twice.
