The wine is full and juicy, with great spice at the end. The finish is firm while still reveling in fruitiness.

Extremely perfumed with lots of cabernet character, such as flowers and blackcurrants. Full body, a pretty core of fruit and very polished tannins that fold into the fruit. Extremely well crafted. A blend of 69 per cent... Extremely perfumed with lots of cabernet character, such as flowers and blackcurrants. Full body, a pretty core of fruit and very polished tannins that fold into the fruit. Extremely well crafted. A blend of 69 per cent cabernet sauvignon, 28 per cent merlot and three per cent petit verdot. Needs two or three years to come together. Try after 2022.

(WA 90-92 points) The 2016 Belgrave is a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot and was picked from 28 September until 20 October. It has a generous bouquet with small dark cherries, blueberry and crushed violet aromas, quite Margaux-like in style. There is certainly good intensity here. The palate is medium-bodied with a supple opening: blackberry, mint and cedar. From the start there is fine tension and there is very impressive structure towards the finish, plus a long saline aftertaste. This is a very strong follow-up to the 2015 Belgrave and indeed, it may surpass it. - Neal Martin

It's extremely Cabernet dominant, with scents of damson, rich spiced plum and touches of vanillin. Great individual strands of flavour include blackberry and bilberry, beautifully fattened up during ageing in bottle. 34% new oak.

The 2016 Belgrave is gorgeous. Striking aromatics and silky, nuanced fruit give the 2016 much of its considerable immediacy and overall appeal. This expressive, beautifully layered Haut-Médoc has a lot to offer. --... The 2016 Belgrave is gorgeous.
