Producer Profile Château Lagrézette
A medieval castle built in the 12th century, Château Lagrézette was acquired by Alain Dominique Perrin, owner-wine grower, in 1980. Although the estate has been growing the Malbec grape since 1503, the property had not been producing notable wines since the 1930s. After extensive restoration, the château and its 90 hectares of vines are now classified as a historic monument. Under the supervision of consultant-oenologist Michel Rolland, Château Lagrézette has developed a reputation for its Malbecs, which have been described by Robert Parker as the “Quintessence of Cahors”.
