Château Belles-Graves

2012 Lalande-de-Pomerol Château Belles-Graves - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


Château Belles-Graves, just outside Pomerol, is named for the abundant gravel found in its vineyards. In addition to providing good drainage, the gravel effectively retains heat, boosting the Merlot (plus a dash of old-vine Cabernet Franc) in its ripening and giving consistently plump, elegant wines with attractively supple tannins. Soft and refined, it can be appreciated in its youth, while the powerful structure lurking beneath promises a bright future in your cellar. For those wondering, the voluptuous fruit you taste today has a tendency to veer toward freshly foraged black truffles as the wine ages.—Anthony Lynch
