Château Malartic-Lagravière Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

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

    Proprietor Alexandre Bonnie has been raising the quality level of this estate to higher and higher levels. Although the 2006 will not rival the 2005, it is a classic, elegant Graves offering aromas of... Robert Parker. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2006 Malartic-Lagraviere 750ml
