Bodega Lagarde was first established in 1897 and has been managed by the Pescarmona family since 1970. The Guarda Vineyards Collection is a high end wine with only a limited release.
This is 100% Cabernet Franc from a vineyard planted back in 1993 which is almost 1000m above sea level. All of the wine spent 12 months in French oak barrels and then another 12 months in the bottle.
