Malartic Lagraviere 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

95-96 Points, James Suckling: "This is so linear and refined with compacted fruit and superb tannin texture. The length and beauty to this grab you immediately and make you pay attention. Wait and see." 4/17 92-95 Points, Wine Spectator: "Ripe and pure, with a long, sleek feel to the cassis and warm cherry preserve flavors. Shows a snap of licorice at the end, as well as floral lift throughout" 4/17 94-96 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Malartic-Lagraviere is a blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot picked between 13-20 October at 46 hectoliters per hectare. It is matured in 80% new oak and the remainder one year old. It has a very composed and pure bouquet with blackberry, mint and just a touch of blueberry, the new oak neatly integrated and menthol developing with time. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, fine structure and a keen line of acidity; this is a pixelated Pessac-Léognan that exudes style and panache. There is an effortless nature to this wine and it feels so persistent in the mouth that you cannot wait to take another sip. This is (another) impressive release from the bonny Bonnie family and do not be surprised if it eventually surpasses the outstanding 2015." 4/17 #230 92-95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2016 Malartic Lagravière is a stunningly beautiful wine. Rich, sumptuous and creamy, it captures all the intensity of the vintage while retaining considerable brightness, energy and lift. Propped up by lively acids, the flavors are remarkably vivid and delineated in this moving, exceptionally beautiful wine. Even with all of its density, the 2016 retains tons of freshness and energy. Ripe red stone fruits, graphite, smoke and cured meats add nuance throughout. Michel Rolland is the consultant. Tasted three times." 4/17
