Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Bellegrave (Pauillac) gives cassis, baked plums, black cherries, cigars and earth on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied, taut, grainy and vibrant with good length.
Decanter: 91
This is all silky elegance, falling over itself to welcome you in. 2016 is such a good vintage for rediscovering those little, overlooked estates, and this is lovely, with enveloping tannins and touches of rusticity that remind you there are still estates working in a traditional manner without extreme selection, even in Pauillac. Very good.

The 2016 Bellegrave (Pauillac) is tasty, straightforward wine with plenty to offer. Dark red cherry, plum, rose petal and spice are nicely pushed forward. Although not especially complex, the 2016 is delicious, juicy and easy to like. It should be a good value as well.
James Suckling: 93
A very attractive array of purple flowers, dark stones and cocoa powder with a wealth of spicy dark berries and earthy nuances. The palate has a very plush, juicy and deep-set build of regal tannins. Long, seamless finish. Right on form and one of the best from here in recent times, as well as being one of the value wines of the vintage. Try from 2023.
