Nose: lively blackberry and black-cherry notes.
Palate: emphasizing the fruity side of Malbec, this ripe, black-fruited wine is smooth and forward, with tobacco, spice and delicious, solid, berry fruit flavours. Freshness weaves through this ready-to-drink wine.
Beside its complexity it is fresh, smooth and velvety.
Alain Dominique Perrin, owner-wine grower, acquired the Chateau Lagrezette, in the south of Bordeaux in Cahors, in 1980; a building dating from the 15th Century, classed as an historic monument. The restoration of the building, its gardens and its vineyards took 10 years.
He is not only a fan of wine, he is also a serious business man,- he used to be the CEO of Cartier and made the brand an essential in the world of luxury.
The Chateau Lagrezette has allowed Alain Dominique Perrin to combine his two passions: a love of beauty and the creation of exceptional products.
The consultant oenologist is the famed Michel Rolland, and Robert Parker, who has awarded many high ratings to the Malbecs of Lagrezette, has described them as the 'Quintessence of Cahors'.
