Presentation of the vineyard
Domaine Lagravière was bought at the end of the 18th century by Count Hippolyte de Maurès de Malartic. This man made himself known mainly as an admiral aboard a French ships in war with England. This is how the name of the castle has been enriched with "Malartic". The castle was later bought by the Bonnie family in 1990, which carries out a major renovation. Today you can easily see the results of this restoration in the wines.
A clear and beautiful ruby red color. An intense and aromatic nose. Complex with elegant fine tones of red fruits, vanilla, smoke and toast. The palate is powerful but soft and fruity (red berries, black currants). Good volume and a long final. Present but pleasant soft tannins.
