Always great wine enthusiasts, Alfred and Michèle Bonnie acquired Château Malartic-Lagravière at the end of 1996. Drawn to the exceptional terroir and the immense potential of its wines, they committed themselves to an impassioned revival of the quality of this Grand Cru Classé de Graves, for both red and white wines, renewing rapidly with his splendor.
Joined by their children in 2003, they acquired the neighbouring Château Gazin Rocquencourt at the end of 2005, which the Grand Cru team manages with the same high standards of quality. 2005 is also the year of their arrival in Argentina within the Clos de los Siete, where they created the stunning Bodega DiamAndes.
From Bordeaux to Mendoza, Vignobles Malartic’s teams, henceforth led by Véronique and Jean-Jacques, work with passion and precision to produce, vintage after vintage, refined, intense, complex wines, for the pleasure of wine enthusiasts all over the world!
The wonderful terroir (sand-gravel-clay soils with a lot of pebbles and ideal climate temperate thanks to the altitude) combined with its owner’s savoir-faire from Bordeaux and its Argentinean team, produce complex, seductive, and balanced great wines. With the Grande Reserve or Gran Chardonnay, both blends of our best plots, the DiamAndes de Uco Malbec, or Viognier, great examples of varietal typicity, the delicious Perlita Malbec-Syrah or chardonnay, all DiamAndes’ line seduces wine lovers from around the world!
Enjoy the benefits

“Currant, mint and cedar aromas follow thorough to a medium body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish. A solid, tight cabernet. Drink or hold.” James Suckling
