In the 15th century, Adhémar de Massaut built a château on the ruins of an ancient fortified house. Located on a stratified slope ("grèze" in French) overlooking the Lot river, the château was naturally named Château Lagrézette. Its imposing style blends traditional medieval architecture with elegant Renaissance ornamentation. Almost forgotten by the 1930s and hidden by a coat of wild vines, the château was rediscovered by Alain Dominique Perrin in 1979. It was love at first sight. Purchasing the property a year later, he set about restoring the château and its gardens. A perfectionist, the restoration project was to last twelve years, but extended well beyond that time. Spanning 25 years, three teams of architects working with specialists in historic monuments, sculptors and craftsmen, brought his dream château to life. His love for the Cahors region and for wines that symbolize the art of living, culture and tradition, has helped him to develop the powerful, generous, elegant and refined vintages of Château Lagrézette, whose quality is universally appreciated in France and abroad.

This wine is a 100% Malbec, and typical of the region Cahors it has a deep red color, nose of red fruit aromas and wellstructured but powerful on the palate.
