Chateau Bellegrave lies in the south of Pauillac between Chateau Latour, Pichon-Longueville and Lynch-Bages.
Formerly the property of the late Mr Armand Roux, the estate was purchased in 10901, by his business partner and sole heir, Mr H. Van-Der-Voort, a trader in San Francisco.
It was in 1997 that Mr J.P Meffre, already the owner of Chateau Du Glana and Chateau Lalande in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, bought it.
Originally from the Comtat Venaissin in the Vaucluse region of south-eastern France, it was in 1954 that Gabriel Meffre, a renowned nurseryman in search of places to sell his plants, discovered the Medoc and bought several estates in Saint-Estephe, Pauillac and Saint-Julien.
Today, his grandsons, Ludovic and Julien, run this new estate.
Chateau Bellegrave Pomerol has blackberry, cherry, vanilla and earthy fruit aroma – firm fruit with good perfume, a lovely minerality and iron notes from the Pomerol soil. Fresh, sleek, integrated oak and a lovely zip in the middle – good, solid wine for the mid-term.
