Château Lagrezette Cahors Moulin Lagrezette 2004

Member Review by duncan 906:

Last weekend I visited my friend in Paris at the end of my European motorcycle trip and he took me to a restaurant specialising in the cuisine and wine of South-west France.I had 'confit du canard'accompanied by slices of potato deep fried in duck fat.It was absolutely delicious and we had this cahors wine with it.This is a superb red wine by any standards and I liked it very much.It is very dark in colour,a characteristic of the malbec grape that makes up 85% of it,the rest being merlot.It has spent 18 months in an oak barrel as well

The 55 meters long and 19 meters deep underground cellars of the Domaine de Lagrezette were devised with a view to both favor the quality of the wine and preserve the environment. Situated at the foot of the chateau, this sophisticated and unique-in-its-design winemaking facility allows a non-interventionist vinification process in the sense that its setting on three floors permits easy transfer from one level to another by gravity. The handpicked grapes are sorted manually, de-stemmed, and crushed at level 3. Level 2 is fitted with small temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for alcoholic fermentation, that allow the separate vinification of each parcel. It also houses a 75 hl oak vat dedicated to the production of the luxury-cuvee Le Pigeonnier. Level 1, which offers ideal and naturally constant conditions of temperature and hygrometry, is the place where the wines are left to mature in new oak barrels. Created as early as the 15th century*, the vineyard of the domaine has been replanted and is perfectly kept. Established on the second and third terraces of the Lot, on a clayey limestone and siliceous soil, it extends over an area of more than 60 hectares, and is planted with Malbec (77 %), Merlot (21 %), and Tannat (2 %) -three grape varieties that combine to give to the wines of Lagrezette their character and authenticity. The vines are managed with the greatest care, with the leaf-pulling and green pruning being done by hand. This ensures the production of top-quality grapes, which are harvested and sorted-out manually, to give the greatest wines. Read less
