2013 Château Chevaliers Lagrézette
A subtle blend of 87% Malbec, 12% Merlot and a very small proportion of Tannat, is the premier cru of our winery. This long-aging wine can be kept for more than 15 years, getting better all the time.
A deep, shining red.
An elegant nose with red fruit aromas, cocoa notes and a well-integrated woodiness.
A supple attack for a fat wine, concentrated and very well structured with smooth tannins, a long aromatic persistence and woody, vanilla notes mingling with dark berry fruits (blackcurrant). This is a hearty, rounded, balanced, harmonious wine with a long, elegant finish.
"The wine is still at the bright fruit stage and will age, so drink now for its fruit, but better to wait until 2018"
