Malartic Lagraviere Blanc 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

91-93 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Château Malartic-Lagravière Blanc 2014 is a tentative blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon that represents around half of the total crop. Picked between 10 and 26 September, yields were 36 hectoliter per hectare and after a ten-day cold settling it is currently being matured in 60% new wood, the remainder one-year old. It has a lively and energetic bouquet surfeit with dewy green apple, wet limestone and citrus scents - already vivacious and demanding the imbiber's attention. The palate is fresh and crisp with a keen line of acidity, vibrant citrus fruit with a linear, poised, marine-influenced finish, as might be befitting the label! Excellent." 92-93 Points, James Suckling: "Beautiful intensity of sliced limes, slates, stones and citrus. This is a serious white as always." Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media: "The 2014 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc is quite powerful, with considerable oak influence from the 60% new barrels that shape the wine's textural profile. Lemon peel, white flowers, sage, baked green apples, chamomile and new oak build to the intense, fleshy finish. As good as the 2014 is, it is also quite raw and not fully formed just yet. The blend is 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon." Wine Spectator: "On the softer side, with makrut lime, tarragon and Chartreuse notes layered gently together and backed by a youthful twinge of green plum on the finish."
