“Quality Off-the-Charts”
Lagrézette Celebrates Unprecedented Wine Scores


CAILLAC, FRANCE (May, 2014) –
Alain Dominique Perrin, owner of Chateau
Lagrézette in the Southwest of France, is delighted
to announce spectacular scores from The Wine
Advocate. Published in the current May 2014
edition, with stunning reviews and mega 90-plus
scores awarded by Jeb Dunnuck, this latest round
of top-shelf reviews puts a brilliant focus on the
powerful 2011 Lagrézette Malbecs and 2012
Lagrézette Viogniers.
Mr. Dunnuck chose to include the wines in the
current Rhone Report. “While located in Cahors
and not falling under the purview of this report,
I was able to taste through this line-up, and opted
to include the wines here as the quality is off-thecharts.”
Universally recognized as one of the world’s finest
Malbecs, Le Pigeonnier 2011, from a prized 7 acre
single vineyard on the third terrace overlooking
the 500-year-old Lagrézette castle, scored a high
rating of 95 points. Jeb Dunnuck describes Le
Pigeonnier as, “an incredible bottle of wine. Inky
purple to the rim, it offers up a thrilling bouquet of
crème de cassis and assorted black and blue fruits,
chocolate, lead pencil shavings, spring flowers and
hints of wild herbs to go with a full-bodied, layered
and seamless profile on the palate.” In good company
with fellow superstars, Le Pigeonnier’s 95 is
identical to The Wine Advocate scores received by
Bordeaux icons: Chateau Petrus 2011 and Chateau
Le Pin 2011.
