Chateau Malartic Lagraviere Pessac-Leognan 2014

Intense, beautifully bright deep purple colour. The bouquet is very fresh with deep, ripe aromas. The palate is smooth and voluptuous, developing a beautiful smooth, full-bodied texture with black fruits aromas, moka, dark chocolate, hint of menthol. This wine reveals a precise, meticulous, very balanced structure, with refined tannins and a superb finish. Its generous, elegant, distinguished style promises an excellent great future.

    THE STORY: Château Malartic-Lagravière, a Cru Classé de Graves,was previously owned by the Champagne house, Laurent- Perrier - in 1997 it was bought by a Belgian couple, Michele and Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie, whose son and daughter-in-law, Jean-Jacques and Severine, have now assumed control. There are 47 hectares of under vine, but only 7 of which are dedicated to white grapes, situated on a fine gravel ridge and now almost encroached on by the suburban outgrowth of Léognan. The estate produces high quality reds as well as tiny amounts of Sauvignon Blanc-dominated white wine. The red is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Their red wines are discreetly elegant, well-balanced that can be austere in youth but, with age, develop complexity and a distinct mineral character that is shared by all the great clarets of Pessac-Léognan.
