4 /5

- Nose: lively blackberry and black-cherry notes.
- Palate: emphasizing the fruity side of Malbec, this ripe, black-fruited wine is smooth and forward, with tobacco, spice and delicious, solid, berry fruit flavours. Freshness weaves through this ready-to-drink wine.
- Beside its complexity it is fresh, smooth and velvety.
- Alain Dominique Perrin, owner-wine grower, acquired the Chateau Lagrezette, in the south of Bordeaux in Cahors, in 1980; a building dating from the 15th Century, classed as an historic monument. The restoration of the building, its gardens and its vineyards took 10 years.
- He is not only a fan of wine, he is also a serious business man,- he used to be the CEO of Cartier and made the brand an essential in the world of luxury.
- The Chateau Lagrezette has allowed Alain Dominique Perrin to combine his two passions: a love of beauty and the creation of exceptional products.
- The consultant oenologist is the famed Michel Rolland, and Robert Parker, who has awarded many high ratings to the Malbecs of Lagrezette, has described them as the 'Quintessence of Cahors'.
