Second wine of the Grand Cru Classé de Graves, Château Malartic-Lagravière, La Réserve de Malartic rouge 2017 has the nobility and complexity of a great Pessac-Léognan. Located in the south of the Bordeaux, Château Malartic-Lagravière looks after an exceptional vineyard very well situated on a superb gravelly hillside. The expression of La Réserve de Malartic rouge 2017 seduces by its aromatic depth and the purity of the fruit. On the palate, the mouth evolves with freshness and structure on a weft of ripe and coated tannins displaying a deliciously velvety texture. A magnificent Pessac-Léognan signed Malartic-Lagravière, balanced and complex.
Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2017 La Reserve de Malartic is deep garnet-purple in color and has a nose of cedar, black and red plums, blackberry pie, herbs, tobacco and earth. Medium-bodied and chewy, it is a little herbal and lean in the mouth and abrupt on the finish.
