Malbec

The history of Château Lagrézette starts in the 12th century, at which time the site was a medieval fortress. In the 15th century, Adhémar de Massaut built a castle on the old foundations located on the ‘petite grèze’, a hill overlooking the river Lot, and was aptly named Lagrézette. In the 16th century, Marguerite de Massaut, granddaughter of Adhémar, became the first woman owner of the domaine. Her surname Dame Honneur is now given to one of the Château's most prestigious wines. The first vines, a malbec varietal, were planted and in 1503.

In 1980 Alain Dominique Perrin—former Chairman of the Richemont Group and the creator of the Cartier brand—took over the property and after 22 years of restoration, to both the estate and the winery, brought Lagrezette wines back to the world stage. Producing some of the finest wines in the Cahors, Lagrezette offers timeless wines of structure and finesse that have received significant international press and scores. In the “birthplace of Malbec,” Chateau Lagrezette stands at the pinnacle of premium Malbec production in the ancient appellation. Respecting its history, but pushing Cahors forward is the aim of the team at Chateau Lagrezette.

Origin

Cahors

The history of Château Lagrézette goes back to the 12th century, at which time the site was a medieval fortress. In the 15th century, Adhémar de Massaut built a castle on the old foundations located on the ‘petite grèze’, a hill overlooking the river Lot, and was aptly named Lagrézette. In the 16th century, Marguerite de Massaut, granddaughter of Adhémar, became the first woman owner of the domaine. Her surname Dame Honneuris now given to one of the Château’s most prestigious wines. The first vines, a malbec varietal, were planted and in 1503, when she married Pierre de Maffre, the first records of the wine harvest appeared.

In 1980 Alain Dominique Perrin, former CEO of the Richemont Group and the entrepreneur responsible for reinvigorating the world famous Cartier brand, took over the property. After 22 years of restoration to both the estate and the winery, Mr. Perrin brought Lagrézette wines back to the world stage. Producing some of the finest wines in the Cahors, Lagrezette offers timeless wines of structure and finesse to be enjoyed today or for years to come.
