The nose is very aromatic, with citrus, mango, ananas and orchard fruit, and subtle smoky notes. The soft, mellow palate is very rich and full-bodied, with a construction that is both complex and very elegant. The finish is long and expressive with a fine hint of minerality. The complex flavors and lively character of this wine suggest that it has a considerable potential to age.
Blend: 80% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Semillon
A blend of 80% Sauvignon and 20% Semillon that hit 14% natural alcohol, this is serious wine boasting notes of lemon and lime marmalade intermixed with honeysuckle, a whiff of freshly cut grass and a waxy, melony character. Aromatically complex, this relatively big Malartic Lagraviere should drink well for up to 20 or more years. A great wine!
Balanced between ripe white fruits, with a hint of peach and a full texture of pear skins and. The wine is powerful, the structure solid, but the freshness is delicious.
Barrel Sample: 93-95 Points
Subtle toasted brioche and blanched almond notes hold a core of heather, white peach, and green plum at bay for now. This finish is long and suave, with nice buried cut. Should blossom with brief cellaring.
