Wine Details

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.

This is a hidden gem, in my opinion. I'm always trying to find french wine that they permit to send to the US. The french know how to do wine, the trick is finding it without paying a fortune. This one is a winner, imho.

This is my first Red Bordeaux, mainly because I'm a little hesitant to try new reds that haven't been recommended by a friend. It wasn't overpowering to me and had nice soft tannins. I really enjoyed it!

Good friend of cameron hughes wine. I'm more or a new world wine lover, but this is a good french bordeaux for a fair price.
