Château Malartic Lagraviere Pessac Leognan 2017

External Review:

This has some power and precision with densely layered fig blackberry and boysenberry paste flavors lined with charcoal and sweet tobacco notes. Long and tarry but polished too. Strong showing. J.M. Wine Spectator.

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. The palate is medium-bodied with tensile tannins very good acidity lending tension and focus towards the finish. This is a fantastic Pessac that deserves a long-term berth in your cellar. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

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 its thickness of texture. With its firm buildng tannins this concentrated youthful wine calls for at least five years of patience. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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.

Probably the best wine that has come from this estate along with their 2005 the final blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon 38% Merlot and the rest Petit Verdot boasts Michel Rolland as the consulting oenologist. This organically farmed vineyard has turned out a deeply layered wine with a striking perfume of graphite wet stones red and black currants tobacco leaf and underbrush. The compelling aromatics are followed by a medium-bodied but intensely concentrated wine with loads of ripe fruit plenty of glycerin (14% natural alcohol) and a long nuanced impressively endowed finish. Accessible already this wine should continue to drink well for 15 or more years. 92+ Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Black red superbly concentrated purity of cassis fruit then fragrant and slightly smoky lift freshness runs through the precise intensity of vineyard fruit a brilliantly expressed and focussed wine that needs time to open up. Drink 2018-35. 18/20 points: Highly Recommended Decanter.
