CHATEAU LAGREZETTE

Château Lagrézette is the flagship wine of the Lagrézette estate. Setting the gold standard for French Malbec, this noble wine consistently garners gold medals in major international wine competitions and acclaim in the most prestigious wine guides.

Château Lagrézette benefits from a separate vinification for each estate parcel. The different lots are assembled after 18 to 20 months of aging in new and one-year-old French oak barrels. The Malbec is blended with a small proportion of Merlot and bottled without clarification or filtering

Description

The legendary 500-year-old Lagrézette estate is located in the historic Southwest
region of France. Chateau Lagrézette grapes are sourced from 20-year-old estate vines
on the clay/limestone second and third terraces of the Lot River. The yields per hectare
are approximately 30 hectoliters per hectare.


Winemaker Notes :
The grapes are gone over manually to control production and assure proper maturation.
Following a strict selection by lot, the grapes are sorted manually in the winery before
being crushed.
Following crushing, cold maceration for five days is set in motion to extract color and
intense aromas and to assure the softening of tannins. Alcoholic fermentation begins
under a constant temperature of 80°F. A maceration of two to three weeks follows,
depending on the grapes, at a temperature of 78°F, to complete the softening of the
tannins and the work of the wine. Malolactic fermentation takes place in new and oneyear-
old French oak barrels. After 18 months in barrel, the wine is bottled the following
June, without clarification or filtering.


Tasting Notes :
Exhibiting an intense, saturated ruby color, Chateau Lagrézette 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.

 

Food Pairing: The strong and silky marriage of aromas and flavors is
an exceptional pairing for wild game, steak and venison dishes. Serve
between 60 and 65 degrees F.
