The opinion of the sommelier

This 2015 vintage of Château Belle Grange really impressed me. It’s very elegant, has a lot of structure and is very full bodied without being heavy, and it has a very long finish. But what distinguishes it from other Saint-Emilion is its unique flavours of flowers that will charm you.  

 

Terroir

Château Belle Grange’s terroir is interesting as it covers the two sides of a hill. One side is made of clay, which is the case in most of the appellation; the other side is made of pebbles, which is more common in Médoc on the other side of Bordeaux. Both combined allow to make great merlot as well as great cabernet-sauvignon which give this great wine once blended.

lecepage Grape variety

In Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux is predominant almost all the time. Merlot enjoys soils of clay which keep its grape fresh (otherwise, this variety tends to make too much alcohol). On the other side, cabernet sauvignon enjoys pebbles as it keeps warmth which is useful for this variety which finds it harder to ripen.

lemillesime Vintage

2015 was one of the best vintage in years in Bordeaux. The wines will age well and for a long time. Sun shined without stopping from March to September but without being too hot which could damage the grapes. Thus, there is a lot of power in this full-bodied wine but not too much alcohol which gives a lighter feeling on the palate. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Verhaeghe Family has a 200 years old history of making wine in Bordeaux. They own estates in Saint-Emilion and in Bordeaux Supérieur appellations. Around half of the vineyard is already certified organic : the other half will soon be and the future vintages starting from 2017 will be certified organic.
