Château Malartic-Lagravière Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"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% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. Cropped at a low 32 hectoliters per hectare, with a modest (by the standards of this vintage) 13.5% alcohol, the wine-s opaque purple color is accompanied by an unctuous texture, extraordinary elegance, lots of licorice, graphite, blueberry, black raspberry, and cherry characteristics, full body, terrific purity and length, and good acidity...93-95+" WA 04/10

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.

    Good tarry style, with plum skin and briar notes lending a grippy edge while the core of blackberry and crushed black cherry lies in reserve.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Malartic-Lagraviere 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

    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
