"One of the finest Belgraves I have ever tasted, this sleeper of the vintage boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant aromas of blackberries and cassis, a classy mid-palate, medium to full-bodied flavors, superb depth and crisp freshness as well as liveliness. Over recent years the large negociant firm of Dourthe has been making improvements and resurrecting the quality of this forgotten Medoc classified growth. The 2010 will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and should keep for 15 or more." (WA)

"Inky ruby-purple. Aromas of ripe balsamic black plum, roasted coffee, tar and licorice. Dense and suave on the palate, with good richness and depth to the dark fruit and licorice flavors. Finishing clean, smoky and long, this larger-styled wine manages to avoid coming off as heavy thanks to harmonious acidity. Belgrave has been on a roll in recent years." (IWC)

"Belgrave uses 52% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc in this vintage. Stone, cassis and hints of pepper in the nose, full-bodied with ripe tannins, structure to age and a blackberry filled finish." (JL)

"Very structured for here with chewy tannins and a blackberry and dark chocolate character. Full and velvety.$$" (JS)
