シャトー・ベルグラーヴ

1855年格付けグランクリュ - AOC オー・メドック

Packshot Bouteille Belgrave - site

シャトー・ベルグラーヴは、同ワイナリーのグランヴァンで、1855年、第5級グランクリュとして格付けを受けています。シャトー・ベルグラーヴでは、土壌タイプおよびその保水性ごとにブドウ樹の生態理解を目的とした研究調査を実施し、これにより、スタッフチームのブドウ畑に関する知識はさらに深まりました。理性的・適切な保護(レゾネ)を基本姿勢とした畑作業はもちろん、収穫作業でもこれらマッピングデータを参考にしています。ワインの中にはこの偉大なるテロワール特有のフィネスと個性がたっぷりと表現されています。濃醇さと深み、高い熟成ポテンシャルとアロマの複雑性、そしてサンジュリアンを想わせるスタイルが特徴的なワインです。

醸造および育成・熟成

一部のロットに対しては低温マセレーションを実施。アルコール発酵中、ロットごとの状態を確認しながら1日に1〜3回ルモンタージュおよび/あるいは1回ピジャージュを行ないます。マロラクティック発酵には部分的に樽を使用します。

樽育成・熟成庫は、湿度および温度を管理する高性能システムを完備しています。ワインは樽の中で12〜14ヶ月間、アロマを損なわないよう注意しながら、シュール・リー製法で育成されます。

ヴィンテージ

2016年上半期は極めて雨が多く、かつ温暖な天候が続きました。結果、その後のブドウ畑にとっては非常に有益である土壌への水分補充が理想的な形で進みました。6月中旬以降は安定した好天が継続し、収穫まで天候はかなり乾燥していました。土壌はたっぷりと水分を蓄えており、気温も日中は過度に高まることもなく夜間はかなり冷涼。そのような環境のもと、ブドウ果実の生育は順調で、成熟期にはアロマの生成が促進されました。

収穫にはゆっくり時間をかけ、3週間近くにわたって作業を続けました。インディアンサマーが広がる中、温暖な気温を享受しながら、区画ごと理想的な熟度に達したタイミングで焦らず作業を進めました。ロットごと、精緻な醸造を心がけ、ブドウという素材本来の複雑かつ豊かな風味を生かすよう努めました。

テイスティングコメント

深みのある濃い外観で包まれたワイン。濃厚な黒果実のアロマと、スパイスやリコリスを思わせるノートが複雑かつ調和よく交じり合う、実にエレガントな香り。味わいはアタックからすでにたくましく芳醇で、後味に至るまでゆっくりと風味が広がります。果実味あふれるボディとタバコっぽさが印象的です。タンニンはとにかく上質。織り目は濃密で、非常に細やかかつ絹のようになめらかです。後味までアロマたっぷり、長い余韻が楽しめます。

美しいハーモニーを奏でるワインという印象が強く、またしてもメドックの格付クリュであるシャトー・ベルグラーヴならではの品の良さとエレガンスが際立つワインの誕生です。

A top year for Belgrave, the is loaded with ripe blackberries, licorice and tobacco leaf notes. Medium/full bodied, with freshness and a bright, spicy, leafy, red berry finish.

Jamessuckling.com
- 94/100

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.

The 2016 Belgrave is subtle, nuanced and quite expressive, with lovely floral notes that add brightness. Sweet red plum, sage, menthol, rose petal and mint all develop as this layered, flavorful, Haut-Médoc opens up in the glass. This is very nicely done, not to mention absolutely delicious.

Decanter
- 92/100

High on the acidity, you know you are in the Médoc here. It's extremely Cabernet dominant, with scents of damson, rich spiced plum and touches of vanillin. Great individual strands of flavour include blackberry and bilberry, beautifully fattened up during ageing in bottle. 34% new oak.

Deep cherry red. Juicy cassis fruit and dusty-fine tannins. Relatively light but long and mouth-watering. Classic Haut-Médoc in structural elegance. (JH)

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.

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.

A classic wine with very consistent quality. Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Excellent nose with distinct oak influence, elegant toasting aroma and gingerbread spices, hints of white pepper in the background. On the palate well structured and balanced with firm tannins, juicy fruit and delicate spiciness in the background. Toasting aroma also in the finish. Convincing length.

ヴィンテージ

非常に良好な天候に恵まれた春をへて、数週間にわたって乾燥した天候が続きました。畑を守るために適確な栽培作業を実施しています。例えば、過度に強い太陽光からブドウ房を保護するために、除葉は東側に対して軽めに実施し、また、水分欠乏を抑える目的で、樹高は低めに設定しています。7月末から9月中旬にかけては定期的に雨が降り、果実は順調に成熟しました。収穫は極めて良好なコンディションのもと、早熟品種のメルロから918日にスタートし、109日にカベルネ・ソーヴィニヨンの最後の区画を収穫しています。メルロは果実感たっぷり、カベルネ・ソーヴィニヨンとプティ・ヴェルドに関しても素晴らしい仕上がりです。

テイスティングコメント

深みと濃さのある外観が美しい、濃醇で複雑さのあるワイン。

軽やかかつエレガントな香りをふくみ、濃厚な黒果実のアロマと、スパイスやリコリスを思わせるノートが調和よく交じり合います。

アタックから即座にたくましさと芳醇さが立ち上がり、ゆたかなアロマ表現と粘性の高いボディが魅力的なワインです。非常にきめ細やかで絹のようになめらかなタンニンが全体を支えています。後味の余韻は長く上品。みずみずしい風味とスパイス香が最後まで印象的です。

Still firm and structured, this wine is dark and solid while still having a line of freshness and good acidity. Juicy black currants and elegant tannins are still developing, giving the possibility of a rich, generous wine from 2023.

A dense and layered red with wet earth and blue fruits. Sweet tobacco, too. Soft tannins give this full-bodied wine a juicy richness and decadence. Plump mouthfeel. So good now but better in two or three years.

年初めの状況はその後を十分に期待させるものでしたが、夏の天候は不十分で、果実成熟のスタートにも遅れが生じました。8月末には絶好の好天が続き、不安感は払拭されました。同ヴィンテージの成功のカギを握っていたのはなによりも秋口の素晴らしい空模様でした。同時に、傷みのない、衛生状態も完璧な果実に育てるために、ブドウ畑では並々ならぬ努力が払われており、その努力なしにはこれほどまでハイレベルな果実の収穫は不可能だったでしょう。9月および10月は絶好のインディアンサマーに恵まれ、果実はゆっくりと熟度を進めました!ブドウ粒が熟すのを待って、丸3週間かけてゆっくりと落ち着いて収穫作業にあたりました。穏やかな醸造を心がけて、果実の魅力をそのまま生かしています。カベルネ・ソーヴィニヨンとプティ・ヴェルドはとにかく風味あふれる仕上がりで、肉づきとストラクチュア、そして果実味との調和を大切に、抽出はロットごとに緻密な管理のもとで行ないました。

深みと濃さのある外観。香りは複雑で、スギ、リコリス、メンソールのノートが調和よく交じり合い、チェリーやカシスを思わせる黒果実のアロマが広がります。アタックから粘性とビロード感を感じさせ、濃密で甘美なタンニンが全体を包みます。バニラがほのかに香り、濃厚な果実味をふくんでいます。余韻も長く、サンジュリアンを思わせるエレガンスが印象的なシャトー・ベルグラーヴです。

CELLAR SELECTION. From the flagship Médoc estate of Bordeaux negociant Dourthe, this wine is impressive, ripe and ready to age well. The wood aging still shows slightly but that is already compensated for by the ripe black-currant fruits from the 66% Cabernet Sauvignon and the generous texture.

Black fruit but also some chocolate and spices on the nose. This is quite a rich and fleshy wine that’s built on a bigger scale than most of the wines of this appellation. The finish is simultaneously rich and dry.

The 2014 Belgrave is laced with the essence of gravel, black cherry, smoke, cured meats and incense. Dark, powerful and brooding, the 2014 possesses serious depth, intensity and personality. Drink this bold, hearty Haut-Médoc over the next decade.

The World of Fine Wine
- 16.5/20

Dense, fine Cabernet Sauvignon blackcurrant and gravel mineral, a seductive bouquet to come; rich middleweight, with a fresh acidity and moderately firm tannin; a lovely ripe blackurrant Cabernet fruit core, and good spicy length to finish. A deliciously juicy quality within a firmish frame. (...) Usually excellent value for a wine that ages very well.

Matthewjukes.com
- 17+/20

A lovely, velvety Belgrave with intense plum and mulberry notes and a perfectly judged finish with oak and tannin in harmony. This is a long wine with charm and class, too. It should age incrementally and show some wilder, more complex notes in the not too distant future. It is clear that this Château is determined to make a true St.-Julien style and in this vintage they have cracked it.

Boasting dark fruits and firm tannins, this wine has a forward personality filled with smoke, tobacco, black cherry, earth and cassis.

A very saturated, dark, black tulip hue. The nose matches up to this character, showing a compote of black cherries, very dark and concentrated, rich and creamy. The palate starts off with a little creamed fruit texture, as the nose suggested, and it keeps this up through the middle of the wine. There is a lot of vibrant but dark fruit like the nose, but with a fresh, succulent texture, impressive for the vintage, with a ripe seam of tannins all around. This is an fresh yet imposing style. A real success here.

6月までは涼しく雨の多い天候が続き、その後に迎えた夏には気温の高い日が続きました。その結果、品種によって大きなばらつきが生じています。それと並行してブドウ樹は均質かつコンスタントに生長したため、5月から9月の期間、栽培スタッフチームは休む間もなく作業を行ないました。最適な熟度に実らせるためブドウの房まわりの風通しを良くする除葉作業は入念に、わき芽の除去も適宜行ないました。畑の衛生状態を良好に保つため、常に管理体制は万全に、不均質なブドウ果実を除去しました。収穫時には畑はもちろん、蔵内においても入念に選果を行ない、また、振り子スイング式除梗機を新たに導入したことにより、果梗を傷つけることなくブドウの軸部分を除去する作業の性能がさらに向上。手作業による仕上げ選果の効率も高まりました。これら各生産段階での投資がこの年の成功の秘訣であったといえます。

テイスティングコメント

黒に近い濃厚な色合いの外観。紫かかった光沢。黒果実(ブラックベリー、カシス)の複雑なアロマが芳ばしく香り、高級木材やメンソールのノートとの調和も楽しめます。味わいに関しては、ビロードのようになめらかなアタック。ボリューム感があり、絹のようになめらかで繊細なタンニンがつくりあげる骨格が実に見事なワインです。みずみずしい風味と素晴らしいバランスが余韻まで継続します。たくましさ、果肉感、アロマの複雑性、そしてフィネス

(51 Merlot, 44 Cabernet Sauvignon, 2 Cabernet Franc, 3 Petit Verdot) There is a good attack of dusty cassis berries on the nose and palate. The texture is slick and it's quite dark in colour. The tannins are very clean and crisp and while it is fairly slim and closed on the finish now I anticipate a fairly swift mellowing.

数年にわたった重度の水不足からようやく抜けだし、2012年はシーズン初めに異例の降水量を記録しています。ベルグラーヴには深度のある水はけの良い礫質土壌が広がっており、土壌は水分を十分に吸収しています。この年の成功の秘訣はまさに経験値と忍耐。不順な天候の影響を受けて、ブドウ畑を衛生的な状態に保つには合理的な栽培管理が不可欠で、絶えず予断を許さない状況が続きました。7月末以降はふたたび理想的な好天が戻りました。十分な日照と昼夜の寒暖差、そして「果汁を仕上げる」と言われるボルドー地方らしい9月の好天の恩恵を受け、最適な条件下で果実は成熟を進めました。果皮もますます上質さを高め、複雑なアロマ表現が形成されました。

テイスティングコメント

濃厚で深みのある外観。複雑な香り。黒果実(ブラックベリー、カシス)、高級木材、メンソールが感じられます。モカのほのかなノートが香りをさらに引き立てています。

ビロードのようになめらかなアタック。芳醇な味わい。絹のようになめらかで上質なタンニンを含むストラクチュアが印象的。試飲終盤まで素晴らしいバランスとみずみずしい風味は継続し、後味にはエレガントな余韻が残ります。シャトー・ベルグラーヴに隣接するサンジュリアンのワインを想起させるスタイルのワインです。

Opaque purple-ruby. Fragrant aromas of dark plum and blueberry complicated by minerals.

記録的水不足が続く中、砂礫質の区画には特に重度の影響が見られ、植物生育の中断が危惧されました。葉面積を調整し、清耕栽培あるいは一時的に草生栽培を採用するなど、栽培状態を調整するための各種作業が継続的に実施されました。夏は湿度も高く、畑の衛生状態にも最大限の配慮がなされました。晩熟傾向のブドウ品種に関しては、畑で行なう初期選果の段階から特に厳しい基準を課し、健全な状態かつ十分な熟度に実った粒のみに選別しています。蔵での作業は平均的な日程で進めました。適度な抽出を含めて、とにかくソフトな醸造を心がけ、エレガントで表現豊かなワインに仕上げています。

重度の水不足に見舞われたこの年、耕耘および葉面積の調整方法を再度チェックし、新たに対策を講じる必要がありました。幸運にもワイナリーのブドウ樹は十分に樹齢を重ねており、降雨不足にもうまく順応しています。夏には暑い天候が続きましたが、猛暑というほどではなく、昼夜の寒暖差も大きく、ゆっくりと熟度を進めるに最適な状況でした。ブドウ畑は特別な苦労を背負うこともなく9月の好天を迎え、素晴らしい熟度に実ったブドウが収穫できました!その後も10月まで良好な天候が続き、細分化した区画ごとにじっくりと収穫作業にあたり、収穫期間は4週間と長期にわたりました。蔵においては、類まれなる品質との呼び声高いこの年のブドウ特有の凝縮感とエレガンスを引き出すことに努めました。

The 2009 Belgrave has a ripe red cherry, kirsch scented bouquet with hints of raisin and fig. It is just flirting with over-ripeness...but not over-ripe! The palate is medium-bodied with candied red fruit, a little chewy in texture and perhaps needing more mineralité on the finish. Yet, there is fine density and decent precision on the finish. Maybe give this another couple of years in bottle

A beautiful 2009: perfectly ripe grapes, wonderfully enveloping substance, the alcohol is there, but the wine isn't heavy at all, rich flavors, a touch of chocolate, great length on the palate but lacking a little something that would set it apart from its colleagues.

Inky ruby. Floral aromas (gardenia, lavender), earth, tar and incense complicated black plum on the nose. Creamy and sweet on the palate, with fresh dark berry flavor and a smooth finish featuring attractive balsamic lift. Lively, harmonious acidity gives this wine a light touch. Should be a charmer for relatively rapid consumption, and will probably merit 90 points on its yummy factor alone.

Tasted at the Medoc UGC and from a sample tasted at home. This has a tight, but well defined bouquet with blackberry, raspberry leaf, cedar and a touch of violets. Bright and lively. The palate is full-bodied with a juicy, fruit-driven entry, but then the tannins on the back palate show that this Haut-Medoc has good backbone. Well-balanced, lovely grainy black fruits infused with tobacco on the persistent finish. This is an excellent, very “classic” Haut-Médoc and a great 2009. Tasted March 2010.

The outstanding, densely saturated purple Belgrave offers blueberry, cassis, eucalyptus, and stone scents.

One of the more obscure classified growths of the 1855 classification, the Dourthe firm continues to make improvements here, and this may well turn out to be the best wine they have produced. Dense purple, with notes of red and black fruits, charcoal, graphite, and spice, the wine is deep and has terrific purity, fullbodied texture, and a fleshy, long, round mouthfeel with well-integrated tannins.

Very dark purple. Attractive freshness on the nose. Very lively and very polished. What’s not to like if you’re looking for a relatively easily maturing good value claret?

Licorice, currant and mineral on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a polished, silky-textured finish. There's a touch of bright acidity.

An elegant, fruit-driven, deep ruby/plum-colored effort, the medium-bodied 2008 reveals lots of sweet red and black currant and cherry fruit notes intertwined with hints of cedarwood, underbrush and spice. Drink this round, pure, endearing wine over the next 6-8 years. Drink 2011-2019

Blackberry, chocolate and tobacco flavors have good density in this fresh, balanced red, which is juicy, with bright acidity and a floral, minerally finish. Fruity, but has depth. Drink now through 2017.

This potential sleeper of the vintage exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as sweet cassis and black cherry fruit interwoven with hints of licorice and smoke. With ripe tannins, sufficient acidity for freshness and nuance, and a moderately weighty, long personality, it is a very good effort to enjoy over the next 12 - 15 years.

Extraordinarily deep blackish crimson but with a gentler nose than many of the other Dourthe wines. Good rich fruit that spreads across the palate. Taut dry finish with marked acidity. Certainly thick and focussed even if not gentle to drink. Marked 'freshness'. [blind] Very dark purple right out to the rim - almost black! A hint of rawness on the nose and heavily extracted but very glamorous and opulent - definitely in the modern, slightly awkward-now idiom. Lots of effort here.

偉大なるヴィンテージの誕生に要求されるすべての条件が揃った年でした。それでも畑での作業には多くの時間と手間が費やされ、ブドウ樹の樹勢および収量に関して、完璧な調整が施されています。植物としてのブドウ樹が求める条件とブドウ果実に理想的な条件とのバランスをうまくとりながら、最適な栽培管理に努めました。4〜8個ほど芽を残した剪定、葉面積に関する分析調査と除葉、適正な耕耘作業、夏期摘房と仕上げの間引きなど。収量は限定的で、フェノール成分および糖分含有量、いずれに関しても極めてハイクオリティなブドウ果粒です。昼夜の寒暖差が大きく、その結果、アロマの凝縮性はさらに高まり、素晴らしくたくましい風味のブドウに仕上がっています。

テイスティングコメント

ベルグラーヴのテロワールのクオリティが見事に表現されたワイン。深みのある外観。生鮮果実(カシス、ブラックベリー)の力強いアロマ。その高い凝縮性は、朝晩ともに冷涼な天候に恵まれた秋口の天候の賜物です。味わいは芳醇で濃厚。とにかく甘美。完璧な熟度で収穫されたブドウ特有の極めて上質なタンニンを含み、それがワインにバランスとストラクチュアをもたらしています。樽香はすでに溶け込んでおり、とにかく全体の調和が素晴らしい仕上がりです。複数の優れた品質のロットを組み合わせることで、濃醇かつエレガント、長期熟成に理想的なストラクチュアを持つ最上級ワインが誕生しました。2005年ヴィンテージは現時点、ベルグラーヴの歴史に残る偉大なボトルのひとつと評されています。

Clean aromas of cedar and cassis. Palate is red and dark fruit with a touch of black olive. Tannins need more time to resolve themselves but good signs for the future. Heartily endorse this one as a bargain wine that you can cellar – with consistent notes since last time tasted in bottle back in 2008.

Decanter

*** Tight black fruit, some vanilla. Palate firm, tight, less generous but good fruit behind. Tannins ripe, mild and long finish. From 2015

The fruit is repressed under wood smoke and powerful, earthy tannins. Slowly, its aromatics develop, the fruit should appear more prominently over the next decade.

The really great values in 2005, however, are going to be in the 90- to 92- point range. I found many wines that are expected to sell for between $30 and $60 a bottle that are of outstanding quality (90 points or higher) and offer all the harmony in fruit and structure that one could hope for from the vintage. My favourites in this group include ... Belgrave.....

I was impressed by this wine en primeur and Julia, who tasted this wine in London three weeks ago scored it 16.5+, thought it should drink well between 2010 and 2016 and this was her tasting note:' Sweet, spicy oak and bright cassis aromas. Well balanced, a blend of classic and modern, cool fine tannins leaving and overall impression of freshness. A bargain?'

Readers should take note of this Medoc classified growth whose quality is on the rise after an infusion of capital by its owner, the huge negociant firm of Dourthe. Strong aromas of creme de cassis intermixed with hints of herbs, licorice, damp earth, and barrique jump from the glass of the dense purple-hued 2003. One of the finest Belgraves produced in many years, it possesses a supple, fleshy mid-palate, sweet tannin, and fine purity as well as texture. Drink it over the next 12-14 years.

This is a solid effort from one of the least-known classified growths of the Medoc. The proprietor, the Dourthe firm, has been making slow but persistent progress in upgrading the quality of this estate. The 2002 exhibits a deep ruby/plum color as well as aromas of cherries, cassis, and toasty oak presented in a medium-bodied, tasty style. Surprisingly soft for the vintage, it will drink well for 7-8 years.

An impressive effort from a property that seems to be on the rebound, this deep ruby/purple-colored wine reveals a classic Medoc combination of cassis, tobacco leaf, and licorice, with spicy oak and damp earth in the background. Nicely layered with low acidity, and ripe tannin, it will drink well for 10-15 years.

Wine Advocate

This obscure classified growth continues to produce better wines under the ownership of the large negociant, Dourthe. It possesses zesty acidity, firm blackberry and cherry fruit, moderate tannin, spicy new oak, and an austere but muscular finish. If the tannin becomes better integrated, it will merit a score in the upper eighties. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2014.

This obscure classified growth produced its finest wine to date in 2000. An inky ruby/purple color accompanies its sweet, expressive bouquet of black fruits, minerals, and toasty oak. With excellent texture, medium to full body, ripe tannin, and low acidity, this impressive Haut-Medoc will be drinkable between 2006-2016. A sleeper.
