Chateau Lagrezette Malbec Cahors 2005 amongst Top Drops of the Month Gourmet Traveller July 2011 (French Edition)

We were very pleased to receive this review in the July 2011 edition of Gourmet Traveller (French Edition). This is the latest in a long list of reviews for this wine.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (USA), in the March 2010 edition wrote:

"Chateau Lagrézette 2005, Rated 90 points. An intensely concentrated wine with tannins that float in an inky sea of dense berry fruit. The wine is smooth, the edges softened by wood, but the fruit tannins pour out of the glass.”

In addition Ben Thomas in the Weekly Review wrote: "($35.99; 14%; 4/5) The wines of Cahors have never been more glamourous since Alain Perrin, the head of fashion house Cartier, bought out this winery. The wine is made by the fashionable, and somewhat ubiquitous, winemaker Michel Rolland. This is full of appealing savoury, deep fruit flavours and aromas of cherry, blackberry, spice, liquorice and leather. Grippy, savoury tannins have softened nicely in the five or so years since it was bottled and it is drinking very nicely now. Food match \ Scotch fillet"
