Winemaker Notes

Exhibiting an intense, saturated ruby color, Chateau Lagrezette offers opulent flavors of small red fruits with beautifully integrated oak components – layered with vanilla and licorice. Overall, a well-mastered, well-defined wine. Typically medium to full-bodied. Complexity, a long finish and great aging potential are hallmarks of this signature wine of the estate.

Wine Spectator
The 2011 Cahors Malbec is a blend of 87% Malbec, 12% Merlot and 1% Tannat that spent 18 months in new and 1-year-old barrels. Coming from terraced plots and clay and limestone soils, it offers decadently styled aromas and flavors of cassis, plum, chocolate and vanilla that flow to a full-bodied, soft, yet layered and decidedly rich mouthfeel. There’s a wealth of material here, yet it is already supple and approachable, with sweet tannin and good length. Drink it over the coming 7-9 years.

Chateau Lagrezette, France
Chateau Lagrezette Winery Image
Alain Dominique Perrin has owned the 500-year-old Chateau Lagrézette since 1980. Passionately committed to producing the finest French Malbecs, M. Perrin has transformed Lagrézette from an understated Cahors gem into a world-class property – producing a wide range of voluptuous red wines – from the flagship Chateau Lagrézette to the luxury cuvée “Le Pigeonnier.”

Cultivated since the 15th century, the vineyards of the domain have been replanted and are now perfectly maintained. As early as 1980, M. Perrin replanted the ancient Pigeonnier Vineyard overlooking the Lot River. Today, these 7 acres of Malbec yield “Le Pigeonnier”, the most prestigious wine of the estate, first produced in 1997.

Established on the second and third terraces of the Lot, on silt-clay soil on gravel, with a foundation of Kimmeridgian limestone dating back more than 150 million years, the estate extends over 148 acres. Planted with Malbec (83%), Merlot (16%), and Tannat (1%) – these three grape varieties combine to give the wines of Lagrézette their character and authenticity. As the principal grape of the Lagrézette estate, Malbec expresses power and elegance – integrating licorice, aniseed and red berry aromas. Tannins are rich and cellaring potential is exceptional.

Setting the standards for red wine production worldwide, France holds rank as the source of the world’s most popular red grape varieties. Famous for their elegance, grace and longevity, the red wines of France come in a variety of styles.

Burgundy claims some of the most desirable vineyard real estate on the planet and remains a source of the world’s most coveted Pinot noir. A powerhouse producer of red wines based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Bordeaux sits on France’s western side, separated from the Atlantic Ocean by a coastal pine forest. The region’s mild, maritime climate and gravel-heavy soils are perfect for the production of highly structured, cellar-worthy red wines. In the south, the long and narrow Rhône River Valley produces full-bodied, flavorful reds. Syrah makes its home in the Northern Rhône where a continental climate and steep hillside vineyards create some of the best in the world. Southern Rhône’s Grenache-based blends easily charm most any wine enthusiast. For those after a more delicate red, the Loire Valley’s Cabernet Franc maintains a loyal line of followers.
