Natalie's Score: 93/100
This is the second wine of Chateau Belgrave, and it's spectacular! Luscious and rich with juicy layers of fleshy ripe black plum. Long tannins mean that this wine is extra supple, with a velvet mouth-texture. It's accessible and ready to drink now, though you could also cellar it for 5-7 years. It's produced in the St. Julien district of the Haut Medoc in Bordeaux. Pair with prime rib.

Gorgeous nose of creme de cassis, Worcestershire, and iodine. There's black briar on the midpalate, along with crushed flower, herbs, and a hint of mushroom. 92 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)

A nose of blackberry and dark plums, fruity and fresh on the palate with mouth-watering acidity and fine tannins.

|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This is a very easy-drinking Haut-Médoc. Aromas of ripe bing cherries, black berries, mint, and white pepper. This medium bodied wine smells astringent and a bit green, but its tannins are well-integrated and the palate has shows no green pepper taste. The medium finish is fruity. Score 91. (S.Segard, reviewed April 2017)
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Tasted at the Dourthe luncheon - An amazing 2nd wine from Chateau Belgrave. Savory texture with a hint of leafy, green flavor. Soft tannin but gives enough grip to your tongue. A good daily drinking bordeaux with some characters.
|Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
This wine from the Haut-Médoc is named after Diane, Roman goddess of hunting, as a tribute to the grand receptions that were held at the Chateau by Louis XV during the hunting season. It is made in a more accessible style, with aromas of fresh fruit, smoke and some mushroom and gamey notes. On the palate, notes of fresh black fruit and finely integrated tannins offer short-term ageing possibilities or a perfect pairing for lamb shepherd’s pie.
