Château Malartic-Lagravière Red Bordeaux Blend Pessac-Léognan 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A beautiful wine from proprietor Alexandre Bonnie’s 115-acre vineyard, this blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot hit 14% natural alcohol. The Cabernet Sauvignon harvest was late, ending on October 18. The wine’s dense purple color is followed by aromas of vanillin, smoked herbs, tobacco leaf, black currants and blackberries. This rich, elegant Pessac-Leognan is loaded with potential. It should drink well in 3-4 years and evolve for 20-25." --Robert Parker(92-94 pts.

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
