A Wine Enthusiast Magazine Top 100 selection, Chateau Lagrezette is an historic estate dating back 500 years. Located in France's Cahors region, which is the birthplace of the Malbec grape variety. Restored to prominence over the last three decades by Alain Dominique Perrin, the cellars and equipment are all state-of-the-art. Super Star consultant Michel Rolland oversees the winemaking to turn out award winning Malbec-based reds with true expression. This is the flagship wine of the estate, 87% Malbec, 12% Merlot, 1% Tannat, sourced from 20 and 30-year-old vines on the second and third terraces above the Lot River. Soils are clay and limestone with a foundation of limestone. The wine aged 18 months in new and one-year-old French barrels and was bottled without clarification or filtering. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 93 points and said "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." This 2009 has aged gently in the Chateau cellars and has reached a peak of drinking pleasure.
