Add to Cart
Pours dark red in the glass, with lifted aromas of cassis, black plums, violents, and black currants. On the palate, a fruity medium-full body is supplemented by smooth, refined tannins. Ready to drink now without serious decanting, but also a great cellar candidate. A dark, savory Bordeaux offering that will certainly add a touch of class to your dinner table.
Cam Confidential

Located on the left bank of the Dordogne, the appellation of Graves de Vayres is historically renowned for its silky, full-flavored wines. The region’s gravelly, sandy terroir is what gives wines their fine-grained texture, a characteristic that is artfully expressed in Pontête Bellgrave’s elegant blend. This garrison and chateau in Saint-Germain-du-Puch has cultivated vines and made fine wines since the sixteenth century, and in 2004, the de la Rivière family purchased the estate, renovating its ancient cellars. A Bordeaux native, winemaker Bruno de la Rivière has crafted a blend that reflects the region’s rich history in this terroir-true blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

30 year old vines, hand-harvested. Partially destemmed and fermented on indigenous yeasts in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. Aged for one year in French oak barrels, with 25% new oak.
