Some investments are safer than others, like a rare bottle of Château Lagrézette’s 100% Malbec Le Pigeonnier. With over 500 years of experience with Malbec wine Château Lagrézette continues to produce pure indulgence in a glass.

Le Pigeonnier is made using traditional methods and ageing in new age oak barrels for 28 months. With only 4,800 bottles produced per year, Le Pigeonnier will mature gracefully over some 25 years and is a smart venture as well as a sumptuous gift.

The Lagrézette estate has 200 acres of vineyards, and grows grapes of excellence and great quality. The principal grape from the Lagrézette estate is the Malbec, powerful and generous, it mixes liquorice, aniseed and red berry aromas; rich in tannins, it is able to age a number of years.

La Pigeonnier can be perfectly matched to your traditional Christmas feast as well as winter foods such as game, foie gras, beef Wellington, steak and ale pie and cheese. A 100% Malbec wine is a rare find and a fine investment.

Available from Harrods and Partridges from £80.
