Château Bellegrave History

Chateau Bellegrave manor house

Château Bellegrave is located in the south of Pauillac, between Château Latour, Pichon-Longueville and Lynch-Bages. Formerly owned by Mr. Armand Roux, in 1901 the property was purchased by his business partner and sole heir, Mr. H. Van-Der-Voort, a merchant in San-Francisco. In 1997, it was J.P. Meffre, already owner of Château Du Glana and Château Lalande in Saint-Julien-Beychevelle, who bought the estate. Hailing from the Comtat Venaissin in the Vaucluse region of southeastern France, Gabriel Meffre, a renowned nurseryman looking for places to sell his plants, discovered the Médoc in 1954 and bought several estates in Saint-Estèphe, Pauillac, and Saint-Julien. Today, his grandsons, Ludovic and Julien, run this new estate.

Château Bellegrave Philosophy

They are convinced that Pauillac is the promised land for Cabernet Sauvignon, the ideal place where its power and elegance can best develop. Your passion for winemaking drives you constantly to ensure that Bellegrave expresses its full potential. You achieve this through your judicious balance between modern methods and respect for tradition.

Château Bellegrave Terroir

Certainly one of the oldest in this privileged region, the estate is surrounded by parcels of the largest classified growths in the Pauillac appellation. The estate has 8.30 hectares of vines with an average density of 8,333 vines per hectare. As the estate's name suggests, the soil is made up of gravel, which both improves drainage and releases heat accumulated during the day at night.

Château Bellegrave Grape Varieties

Cabernet Sauvignon is the predominant grape variety (62%), complemented by Merlot (31%). Cabernet Franc (7%) adds to the complexity of the final blend. Work on the vines is done exclusively by hand, removing excess buds, defoliating and thinning, as well as rational pest control and, last but not least, harvesting.
