Malartic Lagraviere Blanc 92 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

"A fabulous white wine from Malartic’s 17.5 acres of white grapes, this blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon hit 13.5% natural alcohol. It offers plenty of fresh fig, honeysuckle and orange blossom notes in a dense, concentrated, rich style. The wine’s beautiful acidity and fragrance confirm that this was one of the finest white wines produced in Bordeaux in 2013...92-94" WA 08/14

The 2013 Malartic blanc opens furtively with a scent of musk, lemon grass and crushed gooseberry. From here, it just gets better:on the palate are notions of white pepper, more green fruit (gooseberry again) and a hint of almond bitters on the finish. Deep, dense and viscous without a heavy hand, this wine is superb. 93.

The Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc is a blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon cropped at 25hl/ha from 26 September until 4 October. It has a taut linear citric bouquet with fresh green apples and lemon peel that springs from the glass something of a marine influence in the background. The palate is crisp and fresh tight in the mouth with dewy green apple and sliced lime although it needs more persistency on the finish. This is a commendable white Pessac-Leognan even if I think the estat

A fresh multi-dimensional young white with sliced-lime mineral basil and lemon character. Full-bodied but bright and agile. Wonderful intensity. One of the best whites ever from here. James Suckling.
