Description

Château Bellegrave, Pomerol, Jean-Marie Bouldy 2011

Château Bellegrave lies in the south of Pauillac, between Château Latour, Pichon-Longueville and Lynch-Bages. The estate was purchased in 1954 by Gabriel Meffre, who bought several estates in the nearby region. Today his grandsons, Ludovic and Julien run the estate which comprises eight hectares of vines averaging 25 years old. Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominant grape variety (62%), complemented by Merlot (31%) and Cabernet Franc (7%). They believe that Pauillac is the promised land for Cabernet Sauvignon and offers the ideal spot for its strength and elegance to express themselves.

You can have a great family history without going all the way back into the mists of time! At Château Bellegrave, three generations are enough to give meaning to a little world devoted to nature, the land and the vines, in the unique terroir that is Pomerol.

Jean Bouldy bought the estate in 1951. His son Jean-Marie is now continuing his work and shaping the destiny of Château Bellegrave, with his wife and children by his side.
