    A pure expression of the Malartic terroir in a fine red wine

    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 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 which 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 15 months on fine lees in French oak barrels with 25% new wood.

    The blend
    Merlot (82,6 %), Cabernet Sauvignon (12,3 %), petit verdot (5,1 %).

    Tasting
    Tasted as a wine future, the La Réserve de Malartic red 2019 is already shaping up to me a beautiful red wine from Pessac-Léognan. This wine expresses an aromatic palette of great delicacy and precision. Freshness, bright fruit, a velvety texture and a fine tannic structure characterise this superb Second Wine from Château Malartic-Lagravière. Definitely another great vintage ending in -9.
