- A historic property, Domaine de Lagraviere was purchased by Battle of Quebec hero, Anne Joseph Hippolyte de Mauries, the Count of Malartic, in 1756. Later owned by the Ricard family and run by descendants into the late 20th century, the estate was one of only six to enter the 1953 Graves classification for both red and white wines. Owned briefly by Laurent-Perrier, the Belgian Bonnie family took charge in 1996.
