Both owner and cellar master took advice from oenologist Eric Boissenot in order to create a blend that gave the right structure and complexity to their wine. Grapes are rigorously selected and the wines are vinified per plot to preserve the identity of each parcel. The wines of Malartic Lagraviere are known for their velvety texture, and their ample yet complex tannic structure.
Powerful, complex and elegant nose with dark fruits, minerality and a touch of oak. Rich and full body with tight tannins and a great length.
Gorgeously pure blueberry and blackberry fruit along with some notes of cassis, charcoal and licorice jump from the glass of this inky purple wine. An absolutely fabulous success for Malartic Lagravière, this full-bodied wine has sweet tannin, and is complex and long. Drink it over the next 25 years. Bravo!
