A small vineyard of six acres is used to produce this magnificent incarnation of Malbec. Black as ink and firmly tannic, a toughness magnified by new wood, this is still a richly fruity wine that will age superbly to give power and complexity. Keep for at least four years.
A voluptuous blockbuster in the style we are becoming accustomed to from über-consultant Michel Rolland: big, deeply fruited (black cherries) and plush, with elegantly etched spice shadings from new oak. The tannins are supple but substantial; it should age for a long time. Made entirely from old-vine Malbec and named after the pigeon coop in the Château’s courtyard.
This is Alain Dominique Perrin’s answer to the black wine of Cahors. Hugely dark in color, this micro cuvée is still impenetrable after eight years. The power and the density edge towards the medicinal, with a very herbal element in the flavors alongside the wood, black-plum skins and spice.
This is the show stopper of the range from Alain Dominique Perrin’s Lagrezette. It expresses the most powerful Malbec tannins and superripe fruit, without losing sight of the mineral edge. The fruit of this beautiful wine, while opulent, is poised with fine acidity.
