Imagine the scent of adventure
in the historic birthplace of Bordeaux.
Château Malartic-Lagravière is a beautiful wine estate in the Bordeaux region. A family-run property with a rich history, it is one of the jewels of Bordeaux’s cultural heritage. A Grand Cru Classé near the city of Bordeaux, this estate was first purchased in the 18th century by Admiral Count Hippolyte de Maurès de Malartic, a galant defender of the Kings of France. From 1850, the Ricard family took over until at the end of 1996 the Château entered a new era with the arrival of the Bonnie family. A Grand Cru Classé en Rouge et en Blanc, this family estate is one of exceptional terroir. The recent introduction of 'Le Comte de Malartic' presents offerings of remarkable quality at a more accessible price point. Across various vintages, the wines from Malartic consistently articulate the nobility and unique identity of their terroirs.
