Château Malartic-Lagraviere

The nose is very aromatic, with citrus, mango, bananas 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 flavours and lively character of this wine suggest that it has a considerable potential to age.

Wine Advocate

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!

Score: 95. —Robert Parker, February 2012.

Wine Enthusiast

93-95 Barrel sample. 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.

Score: 93-95. —Roger Voss, August 09, 2010.

Wine Spectator

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. Drink now through 2014. 1,250 cases made.

Score: 91. —James Molesworth, March 31, 2012.
