About Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere:

Château Malartic-Lagravière is one of the only six classified growths both for its red and white in Bordeaux.

The Domaine de Lagravière, famed since time immemorial for its excellent terroir and this famous "hillock" of gravel. In honour of the Count Hippolyte of Malartic, admiral who served the Kings of France and owner of the Domaine in the 18th Century, the Château was renamed Malartic-Lagraviere. Bought by Michèle and Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie at the end of 1996, the 53 hectares (131 acres) estate, including 7 hectares (17 acres) of white, has been completely renovated: both vineyard and technical facilities benefit from highest standards of equipment and methods of work (integrated farming, entirely gravity process…). As a result, Malartic-Lagravière is now renowned as being among the best wines in Bordeaux.
