The 2002 Château Lagrézette blends the Malbec (85%), Merlot (13%) and Tannat (2%) grapes to create a well-balanced wine suitable for serving by the glass.
The 500-year-old Lagrézette estate is located in the historic region of Cahors, France, where vines are trimmed by hand to ensure grapes are well ventilated and exposed to the sun.
Grapes underwent a cold maceration of five days to extract colour and aromas and to assure the softening of tannins. Alcoholic fermentation at 82% was followed by four weeks of further maceration to complete the softening of tannins before fermentation in oak barrels.
The deep and brilliant Château Lagrézette wine (14% abv) has red-fruit aromas and touches of cocoa with an integrated woodiness. It has mellow tannins, hints of black fruit and a long and elegant finish.
