法國馬龍琴酒堡小拉菲紅酒 Chateau de Malengin 五大酒莊之一的拉菲(Lafite)酒莊
目前主事成員為Benjamin de Rothschild男爵，他在2003年收購位於右岸聖愛美濃(Saint-Emilion)的Château de Malengin並進行全面整頓這片葡萄園如今站地90公頃分落於兩個衛星產區：
蒙塔涅聖愛美濃(Montagne-Saint-Emilion)與普榭岡聖愛美濃(Puisseguin-Saint-Emilion) 其中前者地塊的葡萄，便是用作釀製這支Château de Malengin。
The vineyard of this wine estate spreads on 90 hectares on two famous neighbouring wine Appellations:Montagne Saint-Emilion and Puisseguin Saint-Emilion. Within this area, the 45 hectares located on the “Montagne Saint-Emilion” Appelation are dedicated to the production of "Château deMalengin”. Malengin is an old middle age fortress built on a limestone plateau. This fortress is situated over beautiful slopes dominating the “Barbanne” stream. The vineyards of Chateau de Malengin are planted on south facing slopes and showing in places big rocks of limestone. This excellent clay and limestone soil gives the Saint-Emilion Merlot its distinctive taste. Particular attention is given to vineyard management in order to achieve low yield and get quality grapes at optimum ripeness. The grapes are handpicked (the machine is used as reinforcements when a faster response is required). The entire harvest is hand selected and destemmed before entering the vat. The wooden vats, stainless steel and concrete tanks are fully temperature controlled. After about one month of maceration in tank, the wine is then carefully aged in French oak barrels during 14 months. Baron Benjamin de Rothschild has acquired this superb property in 2003, aiming at developing the Estate’s great potential. A large renovation work of the cellar was undertaken in spring 2004 to offer modern and efficient facilities.
A garnet-red color with black fruit overtones (Morello cherry) and delicate nuances of fresh spice and chocolate. The start of the palate is crunchy and then goes on to reveal particularly elegant tannins and a beautiful freshness that lasts until the end of the fruit aftertaste.
