The freshness and balance of a fine red wine from Pessac-Léognan by Malartic-Lagravière

The estate
Under ownership by Bonnie family, the majestic Château Malartic-Lagravière has experienced spectacular growth. This Classified Growth of Graves enjoys an exceptional location, with its vineyard superbly situated on an outcropping gravel. With its state-of-the-art technical facilities, Château Malartic-Lagravière shines in Pessac-Léognan, producing white and red wines that stand out as some of the appellation’s very best.

The vineyard
The Château Malartic-Lagravière vineyard covers 73 hectares of vines, including 64 planted with red varietals in the AOC Pessac-Léognan. The soils are made up of dry, clayey gravel upon subsoils of shell limestone with veins of clay.

The vintage
2019 is undoubtedly set to be one of the great vintages of the estate. The daily work of the technical teams, led by Jean-Jacques Bonnie, has borne beautiful fruit. The extreme climate characterising the 2019 vintage has resulted in wines that showcase the unique nature of the Malartic terroir as well as the identities of the grape varieties planted there. The Merlot is well-rounded and juicy, with an intense aromatic expression, while the Cabernets present very fine tannins, freshness and complexity.

The winemaking
Vinification took place in small frustoconical wooden and stainless steel temperature-controlled vats.

The ageing
The wine was aged for around 18 months on fine lees in French oak barrels with 65% new wood.

The blend
Cabernet Sauvignon (55.9%), Merlot (41.3%) and Cabernet Franc (2.8%).

Tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Château Malartic-Lagravière red 2019 seduces with the delicacy and precision of its aromatic palette. Freshness, bright fruit, a velvety texture, finesse and an ample tannin structure – all these elements highlight the singular nature of the Malartic terroir.
