    THE STORY: Chateau Malartic Lagraviere started out life with a shorter name. Originally, it was known as Domaine de Lagraviere. The Malartic family obtained the Bordeaux vineyard at the close of the eighteenth century. In the 1850’s, the chateau changed their name to Malartic Lagraviere. The name change was to honor the family’s famous son, Comte Anne-Joseph-Hippolyte Maures de Malartic, who was a well-known French colonial Governor and French Navy Admiral. In fact, this explains the reason for the boat on their logo. Chateau Malartic Lagraviere passed from the family of Maures de Malartic family to Arnaud Ricard. The Ricard family were quite well-known in the Graves region as they also owned Chateau de Fieuzal and Domaine de Chevalier. The Ricard family eventually sold the property in 1990 to the famous Champagne producer, Laurent-Perrier. In 1997, Chateau Malartic Lagraviere, became the property of Michele Bonnie and Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie in 1997. They earned their fortune as producers and marketers of detergent, before becoming chateau owners. Without prior experience in the wine wine world, the Bonnie family dove right in at Chateau Malartic Lagraviere, spending close to $20,000,000 to completely modernize the estate, and replant and increase the size of their vineyards. In 1998, the entire wine making facilities were renovated. The design was created by Bernard Mazieres. At the time, the cellars of Malartic Lagraviere were revolutionary. They were one of the first major estates to begin using only gravity to move the wine in their cellars, which results in a softer, more elegant wineThey also expanded the vineyards with purchases of additional parcels, including the interesting named vineyard known as Chateau Neuf.They also increased the amount of Semillon planted for their white Bordeaux wine, which added more richness to the wine. Aside from modernizing all their facilities, at Malartic Lagraviere they began a new way of working in vineyards, moving to sustainable farming techniques and replanting sections of the vineyards. All of this has led to the production of a much better wine.Today, Chateau Malartic Lagraviere is managed by the charming Severine Bonnie and Jean Jacques Bonnie. "
