Winemaker Notes

The nose is powerful, complex and elegant. Fine aromas of dark fruit. Minerality. A subtle, elegant woodiness adding complexity. On the palate, the attack is generous, full-bodied and rich. The winedevelops fruit aromas and presents a tight, sleek tannic structure. Lots of complexity and flavor in terms of both the aromas and the tannins. The fine structure enables tremendous power that remainscontrolled with elegance and finesse. With its superb length, this is a distinguished wine with the typical characteristics of Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere.

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

An evocatively perfumed wine, with aromas of pine, eucalyptus and spice. To taste, it is open, generous, its tannins cushioned inside ripe, jelly black fruits. Everything mingles well, the core of dryness an essential component of the richness of the wine.

The Wine Advocate

Proprietor Alexandre Bonnie has produced brilliant white and red wines at this estate's NASA space age-looking winemaking facility. I remember these wines from the early days of The Wine Advocate, and they were undrinkable swill. That is certainly not the case today. This is classic Pessac-Leognan with leafy tobacco, smoky red and black currant, forest floor, cedar, and graphite notes. It is a medium-bodied wine of impeccable purity, texture, and balance.
