Good medium red-ruby. Complex aromas and flavors of red and black cherry, dark plum, mocha, licorice pastille, tar and hot rocks. Supple, suave and broad but not overly sweet, with an edge of acidity keeping the wine fresh throughout and leavening ... Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Intense aromas of licorice, tar and spices, with plenty of fruit. Full, thick and powerful, with soft, round tannins and a fruity finish. Could use a little more fruit center palate, but this is very good. Score range: 89-92 -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Malartic-Lagraviere 1500ml

Progress has been ongoing at this vineyard, but proprietor Alexandre Bonnie has hit the proverbial home runs in 2009 with both his red and white wines. The best Malartic Lagraviere I have ever tasted, the 2009 is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Aromas of blueberries, spices and bark follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and a long silky textured finish. Very fine indeed. Best ever from here. Try it in 2017. James Suckling. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Malartic-Lagraviere 1500ml

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose is very aromatic, with citrus, mango, bananas and orchard fruit, and subtle smoky notes. The soft, mellow palate is very rich and full-bodied, with a construction that is both complex and very elegant. The finish is long and expressive with a fine hint of minerality. The complex flavours and lively character of this wine suggest that it has a considerable potential to age.
