K&L Notes

90-92 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "Tasted twice, the Malartic-Lagraviere has light, marine scents on the nose – a touch of brine infusing the light black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannins on the entry. It is quite masculine with tobacco-tinged black fruit slightly oppressed by the oak on the finish. This should coalesce nicely throughout its barrel maturation, although I suspect it will need several years in bottle to really settle. Tasted April 2013."

    Classic, with tons of mineral notes. Very rich and fresh. One of the best value 2012s from the Pessac area. Earthy style but toasty and sweet. Charming wine that will be ready soon. I like this better than their 2009 or 2010. And their 2015 is to die for. They are getting better year by year. Congrats to the Bonnie family. We have sold 800 bottles so far.

    For some reason this wine reminded more of a Margaux than a Pessac. Perhaps because of its beautiful floral aromatics of violets. The palate follows with coffee, blackberry, graphite and spices. It needed decanting to open up all its potential on our tasting, but it did, and it showed beautifully.

    Polished and juicy, this bottle manages to be completely accessible and engaging at the same time. Subtly integrated notes of barrel spice, anise, sage, mocha, mineral, and pencil shavings add gravity to the wine's luscious fruit. The tannins are slightly chalky but rounded and the acidity brightens everything up perfectly. Delicious now - especially for the price - this bottle is dressed to impress as it reaches its peak.
