Formerly the Domaine de Lagraviere, Chateau Malartic Lagraviere has been the property of Michele and Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie since 1997 who initially lacked experience of any kind in the wine trade. They invested close to €20 million in the estate, modernising it inside and out, as well as expanding the vineyards and engaging with new sustainable farming methods. Additionally, more rigorous grape selection processes for the Grand Vin were adopted, leading to far superior quality than previous vintages.
Chateau Malartic Lagraviere represents 53 hectares of vineyards. 46 hectares are devoted to red grapes, 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and to 2% Petit Verdot. The remaining 7 hectares are planted to 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon.
