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.
Aged for 15 months in French oak barrel 25% of which is new. The second wine of the estate is medium-bodied with vibrant red and dark fruits and soft tannins.
This has tile, stone and dusty-soil character to the dark fruit and plums. It’s full-bodied and extremely refined with beautiful tannins and fruit. Currants and light chocolate at the end.- 93 pts James Suckling
lovely 2nd wine, soft grilled caramel around the edges of plump black fruits, well judged extraction and great freshness through the palate. No need to wait to enjoy this as the tannins are so carefully integrated, but it still has impact and elegance, and a real reminder of the first wine.
