Château Lagrezette Reviews Wine

A small vineyard of six acres is used to produce this magnificent incarnation of Malbec.

94 Château Lagrézette 2009 Le Pigeonnier (Cahors). A small vineyard of six acres is used to produce this magnificent incarnation of Malbec. Black as ink and firmly tannic, a toughness magnified by new wood, this is still a richly fruity wine that will age superbly to give power and complexity. Keep for at least four years. The Other Wine & Spirits. Cellar Selection. —R.V.

93 Château Lagrézette 2010 Malbec (Cahors). A perfumed, red-fruited wine, packed with tannins and huge, concentrated fruit. It has richness, dark structure and an intensity that promises a long future. The balance is not there yet, so wait at least 7–8 years. The Other Wine & Spirits. Cellar Selection. —R.V.

93 Château Lagrézette 2009 Malbec (Cahors). Wood and fruit tannins push through strongly in this powerful wine. It has weight and plush fruit texture, and behind the tannins, dark chocolate and licorice flavors. It’s dense and concentrated, needing several years, at least 5–6, to shine. The Other Wine & Spirits. —R.V.

91 Château Lagrézette 2010 Château Chevaliers Lagrézette Malbec (Cahors). This wine from Château Lagrézette is powerful and dense in its own right. It has black, juicy, tar-like flavors with tannins concentrated into a dry, dark core. Blended with a small proportion of Merlot, there is just a touch of softness which will allow the wine to mature in the next 2–3years. The Other Wine & Spirits. —R.V.

86 Château Lagrézette 2011 Purple Malbec (Cahors). The entry wine of Château Lagrezette lives up to its name in the color. With its soft tannins, touch of smokiness and blackberry-juice fruit flavors, it’s a fine showpiece for the more open side of Malbec. The Other Wine & Spirits. —R.V.
