bottle 75cl: 32,50 €bottle 75cl

Bought in 1988 and then renovated from top to bottom, Malartic-Lagravière is back to the fine, straight and distinguished style that made it successful in the 1950s and 1960s. Malartic-Lagravière continues its ascent has earned the 2018 vintage unanimous critical acclaim: 93/100 from the Revue du Vin de France and 94/100 from En Magnum « il faut plus que jamais compter avec Malartic parmi les incontournables de l'appellation ».

Rated 92/100 by Neal Martin « a lithe Pessac-Léognan with soft blackberry, red plum and redcurrant fruit laced with clove and white pepper towards the finish. Not a wine of astonishing complexity, but elegant and satisfying persistence. Enjoy this over the next 15 years, possibly longer. » (Feb. 2020)

Noté 91/100 par Jean-Marc Quarin « Nez très aromatique et fin, au fruité mûr. Caressant en entrée de bouche, puis suave au milieu, savoureux et très parfumé, ce vin glisse au palais, juteux et noble dans sa présence finale. C’est bon! » (Oct. 2020)

    Rated 92/100 by Antonio Galloni (Vinous) « The 2018 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc offers a good bit of precision to play off the natural radiance of the year. [...] This is very nicely done. » (April 2021)

    Rated 94/100 by En Magnum « Adroitement vinifié avec un petit allégement du tannin qui va dans le sens d'une recherche de plus d'élégance immédiate, finement épicé, très typé Léognan, finale fraîche et élégante. Il faut plus que jamais compter avec Malartic parmi les incontournables de l'appellation. » (Avr. 2020)

    The 2018 vintage is rated 93/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin "Dark red colour. Intense. Intense, fresh, fruity, ripe, complex and deep nose. Ample on the attack, juicy on the mid-palate, very tasty in the middle and a tad austere, the wine evolves towards a slightly spicy finish. Good length." (September 2021)

    Rated 93/100 by the Revue du Vin de France "Dense, velvety, keeping a beautiful balance, built on long, silky, accomplished tannins, with a well-integrated alcoholic generosity. Long ageing potential". (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 94/100 by En Magnum "Skilfully vinified with a slight lightening of the tannin, which is in line with the search for more immediate elegance, finely spiced, very typical of Léognan, fresh and delicate finish. More than ever, Malartic is one of the must-haves of the appellation ". (Apr. 2020)

    The 2016 vintage is rated 94/100 by Jean-Marc Quarin "Dark, intense and beautiful colour. The nose is moderately intense, with ripe fruit and a hint of the right bank. A hint of pinewood adds to the overall freshness. Smooth and melt-in-the-mouth from the outset, the wine develops a juicy, fragrant mid-palate, with a hint of resin in its flavour. It evolves fat, deep, with flavour, flesh and fine tannins." (February 2019)

    Rated 95/100 by N.Martin " The 2016 Malartic-Lagravière has a wonderful bouquet of perfumed, mainly red fruit laced with potpourri, black olive tapenade and light brine-like aromas - a bouquet full of personality. The fresh, harmonious palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity and just the right amount of salinity toward the loam-tinged finish. Bon vin from the bonnies.
