Bellegrave du Poujeau - Haut-Médoc 2011

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

This little vineyard in Médoc is a nice discovery. The attack is very pleasant and the aromatic profile of this wine is complex, mainly based on strawberry and blackcurrant aromas perfectly enhanced by a marked acidity. This wine is at the beginning of its peak, but if you enjoy tertiary aromas, it will easily wait for you a few years in your cellar. 

 

Terroir

The vines are planted on a particularly thick ground of Graves. These big and hard round pebbles do not retain water and nutrients on the contrary to the layer of clay these lie on. Therefore, vines’ roots have to struggle through the pebbles to get their water and nutrients in the clay. It is a good thing as it forces the vine to be stronger so as to reveal the whole potential of the grapes!

lecepage Grape variety

Merlot and cabernet sauvignon is the most widespread blend in Bordeaux. Cabernet franc, without being rare, is less common. It’s the main variety in Chinon in the Loire Valley and it is often used in Bordeaux to complete the blends with its fresh red berries aromas.

lemillesime Vintage

2012 was (very) rainy in Bordeaux, which slowed down the ripening of cabernet sauvignon, a grape variety that needs a lot of sun to be at its best. Thus, it was harvested pretty late, long after merlot and cabernet franc, which required a lot of work that the team of Bellegrave du Poujeau perfectly accomplished. 

lerecoltantA winemaker, a family

Château Bellegrave du Poujeau is a typical example of what is called a gardener’s wine. With only 4 hectares, Jean-Pierre Cantelaube can give a lot of attention to each of his vine stocks. For example, they are all pruned individually which allow to reach the highest level of ripeness possible each time, so there are no more bad vintages!
