Cartier, Haut Brion, Michel Rolland, Oh My! Yes, Chateau Lagrezette has it all--and that means a bottle with enough nuance to be intellectually thrilling, and enough fruit to be decadent in all the right ways.

A Malbec-heavy blend from the appellation that made Malbec famous before Argentina was even a country, Lagrezette combines intense dark fruit with incredible earthiness--the Michel Rolland golden touch! This offer is so good, we’re sharing--there’s a 6-bottle limit on the tiny release we have, get yours quick!

About the wine

The original Malbec, Cahors is known for its dark, robust, earthy wines and Chateau Lagrezette brings 500 years of history and know-how to the table with this bottle. Add in Haut Brion winemaking and this red is a no-brainer!

Built in the 12th century, Chateau Lagrezette was returned to its former glory by Alain Dominique Perrin of Cartier in 1979 and the wines have garnered serious praise ever since. Situated at the edge of a stratified slope at the edge of the Lot river, the estate takes its name from the French word for the slope, or “Greze.”

From several parcels across the ancient Cahors appellation--the first to vinify Malbec--the estate’s namesake blend is compiled from grapes grown on ancient limestone and clay soils. Vinified and aged separately in French oak, the final wine is compiled by globally-renowned winemaker Michel Rolland before further aging at the estate.

Reviews

4.1 Vivino Users

"This is my best Malbec ever." - Gerad S.

"Nice, if you are in special wines, the nose reminded so much in the Delas Hermitage." - Bruno S. 

"Probably the best Malbec I've ever had - lovely wine, rich, deep flavours" - Matt M. 

95 pts, Thomas Stafford, Certified Sommelier

"The 2011 Chateau Lagrezette Malbec has a dark ruby core color with a deep dark magenta rim. The aromatics of fresh blackberries, cassis, and tobacco leaf jump right out of the glass. On the palate, blackberry jam with hints of lavender lead into a smooth finish with soft tannins to round out in the mouth. I would pair this wine with a charred skirt steak with a small topping of chimichurri sauce."

91 pts, Wine Spectator

"The 2011 Cahors Malbec is a blend of 87% Malbec, 12% Merlot and 1% Tannat that spent 18 months in new and 1-year-old barrels. Coming from terraced plots and clay and limestone soils, it offers decadently styled aromas and flavors of cassis, plum, chocolate and vanilla that flow to a full-bodied, soft, yet layered and decidedly rich mouthfeel. There’s a wealth of material here, yet it is already supple and approachable, with sweet tannin and good length. Drink it over the coming 7-9 years."

91 pts, Wine Enthusiast

"With mint and black fruit aromas, this is a ripe, fruity wood-aged wine. Power and complexity come from the structure and the dark black fruits. Hints of licorice accent the strong tannins and fruit. Drink from 2018."

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING OVERVIEW

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:


  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


SHIPPING SCHEDULES FOR TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPMENTS

All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.


Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.


If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


TRACKING INFORMATION

Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.


You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.


Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.


KEY ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SHIPPING

  • Your wine can be protected from environmental damage for the entirety of its journey
  • This service is provided to you at no additional cost
