Glowing, intense ruby color. An expressive nose of ripe, soft fruit, revealing blackberry, blackcurrant and cherry, melded with notes of subtle vanilla and spice from oak aging. On the palate, balanced and refined, with a long impression of lively, ripe fruit. The pure, polished tannins on the finish are the epitome of the Médoc classified growth style of élevage. Drink now and over the next 6 to 8 years.
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!
This is another new chateau for us. Dark color, medium to full-bodied, with sweet, but firm, tannins. Hints of mocha, nice ripeness. Long finish.
