Château Malartic-Lagravière Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Pessac-Léognan Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a dreamed year for every winegrower. The ideal weather conditions linked to the know-how of Malartic-Lagraviere staff allowed to drive tactfully and cleverly this vintage 2009, which unveils its potential day after day. After relatively late fermentations, the wines in barrels have been growing and keep on surprising us. They are wonderfully silky, with a beautiful structure...So elegant. A great vintage. Definitely.

Balanced between ripe white fruits, with a hint of peach and a full texture of pear skins. The wine is powerful, the structure solid, but the freshness is delicious. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc 750ml

Aromatically complex, this... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc 750ml
