From the best plots of Château Lagrézette, the Dame Honneur cuvée gives all its letters of nobility to this exceptional grape: Malbec. A wine for aging, the Cuvée Dame Honneur can age and improve for more than 20 years. The Cuvée Dame Honneur draws its aromas from the oldest vines of the Domaine, planted on the third terraces of the Lot and on the Causse. The very delicate berries are harvested and sorted by hand. After vinification, the cuvée is aged between 22 and 24 months in new oak barrels, before being assembled by oenologist Michel Rolland, then bottled at the château.
