Editorial Reviews for Château Malartic-Lagravière Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan
Hugely herbaceous nose, Cabernet driven, black, gravel and even some tomato- a bit blocky in the mouth, structured and balanced with nice density and weight, but not much detail, tight, finish is short, should improve (85-86)
Cocoa, mocha and blueberry on the nose. Still young and tight, but with a lot of potential. Complex and with a nice finish - a wine to watch for sure
Very mineral, almost fungal nose - really intriguing. Sounds strange, but i loved it. Very aromatic throughout - peaches, light spice from the oak - nice mineral finish.
Much smokier and denser than the more recent years, this wine is all truffle, smoke and toast. Very mineral, still restrained in the mouth - will continue to age some more. Very mineral finish.
Two and a half glasses

The Malartic-Lagraviere has a very well defined, quite floral bouquet with crushed violets, small dark cherries and a touch of dark plum. Very good clarity and refinement.

A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc 1500ml
This is impressive, with a gorgeous palate of super velvety tannins and ultra-ripe fruit. Full and caressing yet muscular and powerful. Tasted three times. Best ever. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Malartic-Lagraviere 1500ml
A perpetual over achiever from the Pessac-Leognan, the oldest wine-producing terroir in Bordeaux. This region of course is also home to First Growth Chateau Haut-Brion. Château Malartic-Lagravière's red wine in the outstanding 2010 vintage received raves including 95 points from James Suckling. A fabulous blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, Robert Parker scored it 94 points saying "Lead pencil shavings, soy and barbecue smoke as well as red and black currants characterize this brilliant effort, which has an expansive, full-bodied mouthfeel yet a sublime elegance and lightness of being. Dense ruby/purple, gorgeous purity and a long, long finish of close to 50 seconds characterize another brilliant effort from this classified growth in Pessac-Leognan. It should drink nicely for 25-30 years yet is surprisingly accessible even today."
The Domaine de Lagravière, famed since time immemorial for its excellent terroir and this famous "hillock" of gravel. In honour of the Count Hippolyte of Malartic, admiral who served the Kings of France and owner of the Domaine in the 18th Century, the Château was renamed Malartic-Lagraviere.Bought by Michèle and Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie at the end of 1996, the estate has been completely renovated. All the conditions have been united to make Malartic-Lagravière's wines worthy of their place amongst the greatest Bordeaux: a terroir and vineyard of high standards, innovative and high performance equipment devoted entirely to traditional winemaking methods, and a committed and passionate team. One of the only six classified growths both for its red and white, Château Malartic-Lagravière's wines are well known all over the world for their complexity, power, elegance and balance.
