Château Lagrézette, a subtle blend of 87% Malbec, 12% Merlot and a very small proportion of Tannat, is the premier cru of our winery. This long-aging wine can be kept for more than 15 years, getting better all the time.
An elegant nose with red fruit aromas, cocoa notes and a well-integrated woodiness.
A supple attack for a fat wine, concentrated and very well structured with smooth tannins, a long aromatic persistence and woody, vanilla notes mingling with dark berry fruits (blackcurrant). This is a hearty, rounded, balanced, harmonious wine with a long, elegant finish.
The various parcels and varieties of grapes that go into Château Lagrézette are vinified separately and then matured in new oak barriques and second-pass barriques for 18 to 20 months. After our enologist Michel Rolland carefully orchestrates the blend, the wine is very lightly filtered and then bottled at the Château.
Cold maceration at 9°C / 48.2°F for 4 days, then fermentation at 30°C / 86°F, followed by a long maceration (between 4 and 5 weeks) at 28°C / 82.4°F. Daily pumping over, pigeage, malolactic fermentation in vats and oak barriques.
