  • The partnership:

    March 2012 - The Bonnie family, owner of Chteau Malartic-Lagravire, has decided to join famed

    watchmaker Audemars Piguet to celebrate the 40th

    anniversary of their iconic watch: The Royal Oak. For the

    occasion, they will embark on a worldwide journey, covering 6 unique destinations: New York in March, Milan

    in April, Paris in June, Shangai in late August, Singapore in October and Duba in December. In each city, they

    will showcase a roaming exhibition created specially for the anniversary and a dinner series featuring

    Malartic-Lagravires Pessac-Leognan as the exclusive wines. The ethics of excellence that binds these two

    legendary brands make the partnership natural: both have centuries of experience, a sense of place and

    timeless features.

    Bought by the Count of Malartic in 1803, the Malartic-Lagravire estate is one of the only six Grands Crus Classs

    de Graves in Bordeaux to produce red and white wines. It is a place of ancestral know-how, family tradition and

    groundbreaking innovation. From the eponymous Comte to the Bonnie family proud owners of the estate for the last

    15 years the wines of Malartic-Lagravire have always been created with the greatest, uncompromising attention to

    details and quality in order to deliver Pessac-Lognan wines worthy of their name and legacy. In recent times, Chteau

    Malartic-Lagravire has been shaped by the vision of the Bonnie Family who understood that in order to obtain the best

    possible wines, instilling quality at every level of production is paramount. In 1997, the Bonnies went through a major

    overhaul of their cellar to ensure that transportation and process was respectful of the grapes from the vineyard to

    barrels. Today, the state-of-the-art facilities at Malartic-Lagravire are amongst the best in Bordeaux with a 100% gravity

    system, avoiding the use of pumps and pipes, and allowing for a respectful transportation of the grapes that does justice

    to the wines extraordinary complexity. The result is a harvest that is carefully handled from the sorting table to the vats.

    In 1875, Audemars Piguet was created in the Valle de Joux, in the Swiss Jura and today, it is the last fine

    watchmaker still in the hands of the founding families. Just as Malartic-Lagravire acknowledges that nothing outstanding

    can be achieved without a terroir that stands out, the birth place of Audemars Piguet was equally important in shaping

    the personality of its watches. The serene valley provided the inspiration that gave birth to the most complex watch

    mechanism. In 1972, Audemars Piguets thirst for breakthroughs manifested again with its greatest innovation yet, one

    that changed watch making forever, with the creation of the first Royal Oak. The 40 Years Exhibition, designed by

    Sebastien Leon Agneessens will pay tribute to the land that made it possible for such mastery to materialize and to the

    heritage bestowed by the mother of all luxury sports watch. Recognizable by its unique defining features the octogonal

    bezel fixed with the hexagonal screws, one of the thinnest self-winding movements, the seamlessly integrated to the case

    bracelet and the tapisserie pattern on the dial - this exceptional watch stays true to the tradition of excellence that

    originally drove the conception of this timepiece, while still providing industry-defining quality and know-how in the 21st

    century.

    Excellence, mastery, artistry, tradition and breakthroughs... These antagonistic, yet complementary words

    describe the values shared by the Bonnie family of the legendary Bordeaux estate Malartic-Lagravire, and the ancestral

    watchmaker families Audemars and Piguet.
