SKU 749 Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere Pessac-Leognan Blanc 2010 (Offer $88 UP $108)
Clear, bright yellow with slightly green glints. Floral notes, citrus fruit, refined exotic aromas, white-skinned fruit, white pepper, minerality, lovely complexity and intensity. Palate clean, direct attack, excellent volume, very lively in the mouth, intense fruit dominated by citrus and white fruit. Very pleasant overall impression; already complex, and with excellent balance, this wine promises to keep for a very long time.

2014 has a deep purple colour. An aromatic nose, offering up fresh red fruits (blackcurrant), notes of balsamic and spices. In the mouth, there is a dense and powerful structure with a lot of richness. The tannins are velvety. The finish is resolutely on the fruits, with notes of cherries and juicy prunes, but also some delicate floral notes (violet) and sweet spices. Good ageing potential for this vintage thanks to the Cabernet Sauvignon. A future grand « classic » of the property.
SKU 750 Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere Pessac-Leognan 2013 $88
Château Malartic Lagravière really begins at the end of the 18th century, thanks to the family of Count Hippolyte de Maurès de Malartic. However, it was not until 1850 that the new owner of the estate, Mrs. Arnaud Ricard, awarded the name of Malartic to that of Lagravière in tribute) this illustrious admiral. Finally, it is Jacques Marly who will take over the direction of the Domaine from 1947. Finally, in 1996, the Château takes a new course with the arrival of the Bonnie family at its head. Château Malartic-Lagravière is one of six Crus graded both white and red in the 1953 Graves classification.
