Château Belgrave is located in the Haut-Médoc and was classified in 1855 as a 5th Growth. Actually, it is almost a Saint-Julien, as the vineyards border directly on Chateau Lagrange. In 1979, the Negociant (trading house) Dourthe acquired Chateau Belgrave and subsequently invested large sums of money to advance the quality of the wines. Significant part in the success has oenologist Michel Rolland. Château Belgrave is a bargain among Grand Cru Classé today.
