Product Description

PRODUCER: 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.

WINEMAKING: The harvesting period for this blend was: Merlot was from the 4th to 12th of October 2012, Cabernet-Sauvignon From 13th to 18th of October 2012, Cabernet-Franc From 13th to 15th of October 2012 & finally Petit-Verdot was finally harvested just before the 10th of Ooctober 2012. the exact blend of this wine is Cabernet-Sauvignon 50 % Merlot 45 % Cabernet-Franc 3 % & Petit-Verdot 2 %. These vines sat along well-drained gravels and clay gravels on shelly limestone and clay subsoil the juice was finished in both Stainless steel pots and wooden barrels with 60% new oak for approximately 18 months.

TASTING NOTES: On the nose: powerful, complex, rich, extremely elegant, refined, very deep. Various notes of red fruit (blackcurrants, raspberries). Concentrated, pure nose, with a smokiness and a minerality that is typical of this wine. On the palate: smooth, rich, full-bodied attack. Distinguished, elegant, refined tannin structure. The same aromatic profile as the nose develops, with intense fruit, lovely minerality and pleasant smoky notes. The palate has superb length and supple tannins, making Château Malartic-Lagravière 2012 already very accessible, while at the same developing a complexity that suggests it will improve further with age.

Robert Parker - erobertparker.com - April 2015 94 This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. The quality of the white and red have soared to exceptional heights, and this is certainly still one of the more realistically priced wines of Pessac-Lèognan and classified crus. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Léognan, with wonderfully velvety tannins. Drink it now, or drink it in 25 years. This is a brilliant wine.

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com - January 2014 95 Impressive nose with leather, dark polished fruit and flowers. Wonderful mouthfeel with soft silky tannins and beautiful texture. Really well put together. Powerful and rich with loads of fruit and ripe tannins. Very ripe. Try in 2016.
