Description

A fine red wine from Bordeaux with beautiful density, well-balanced with a remarkable freshness

The estate

Under the auspices of the Bonnie family, the majestic Château Malartic-Lagravière has experienced spectacular growth. This Grand Cru Classé de Graves benefits from an exceptional location, with a vineyard superbly situated on a gravelly outcropping. Endowed with state-of-the-art technical facilities, the Château Malartic-Lagravière shines in the appellation, with white and red wines which stand out among the finest vineyards of Pessac-Léognan.

The vineyard

The vineyard of château Malartic-Lagravière covers 71 hectares of vines, aged 28 years on average. 62 hectares are in the AOC red Pessac-Léognan appellation. The soils consist of dry, clayey gravel and lie on subsoils of shell limestone and clay veins. To preserve this precious terroir, the estate uses environmentally friendly viticulture. Conducted through sustainable agriculture, the vineyard is certified at High Environmental Value Level 3.

The wine

During the wonderful 2020 vintage, La Réserve de Malartic changed its name. From this year onwards, this wine variety will be called Le Comte de Malartic White.

The vintage

The vintage will remain etched in people’s minds as a particularly early vintage due to the exceptional weather conditions. Spring was relatively cool and humid. In March, frost hit the château, while in April, strong heat picked up at the vineyard. The weather conditions in May allowed for a flowering that was as quick as it was homogeneous. The summer was hot, dry, sometimes even scorching. The harvests even ended under particularly hot conditions.

Vinification and ageing

After the manual harvest, the berries are carefully selected through successive sorting. The grapes are then slowly pressed and completely inerted before fermentation in barrels. Finally, the wine ages on its lees in 22% new French oak barrels for around 10 to 12 months with regular stirring.

The blend

Sauvignon blanc (83%), and Sémillon (17%).

The tasting

The Comte de Malartic Blanc 2020 embodies a wine with very good density and great concentration, along with a superb freshness. The result is remarkable balance and elegance. The tannins are racy and refined. The great aromatic purity gives this white wine precision, roundness and a pleasantly fragrant character.
