    The 2014 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan is a watershed vintage, displaying all the care and attention lavished on the property by the Bonnie family over the past two decades. The quality (which has continued to improve here, year after year) is exceptional. With dense, concentrated fruit wrapped around a firm, mineral core, the wine manages to remain fresh, vivacious even without compromising any ripeness. Balanced and harmonious, a complete wine. 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet-Franc, 3% Petit-Verdot. One of the great values of the vintage.

    Every Bordeaux producer I've spoken with thinks 2014 will be looked back upon as one of the best value vintages of the last two decades. Currently sitting in the shadow of 2015/16, two harvests with HUGE scores, it's a vintage that's getting lost in the crowd, which is a good thing for those of you who hunt for value. 2014 is classic Bordeaux through and through, and it was an especially good year in Pessac-Leognan, a region from which I've tasted dozens of incredible cuvees for less than $50. The 2014 Malartic Lagraviere was right there with the Domaine de Chevalier in my book for value of the vintage. This wine has equal amounts of dark cassis, herbaceous character, and fine tannic structure, but it still needs time to congeal. Buy six of these, throw them in your cellar, and forget about them for a decade. Then call us back in 2027 and tell us how happy you are.

    The Bonnie family has this property producing fabulous wines since 2000-especially in 2012-2016 vintages. Very solid, with a core of dark plum, blackberry and fig preserve notes held in check by tarry grip. Ample singed apple wood and cocoa elements form the frame.

    This property has really stepped up their game and this might be their best release to date. The 2014 is a wine of richness and depth showing off sweet currant and black raspberry fruit, flowers, spice and a dark edge to the persistent mineral finish. This big, lively and balanced wine will age beautifully but is delicious already.
