Grapes: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot.
The wine is almost black in colour, displaying dark red glints and a delicate purple rim. The complex, intensely fresh bouquet opens on toasty notes, enhanced by powerful black fruit aromas. The wine is all-enveloping and characterised by an elegant, powerful, tight structure and silky, concentrated tannins. It evolves towards and impressively long finish, revealing attractive oaky notes. Magnificent Belgrave, very Saint-Julien in style.
