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."

    Have to tell you this is one of the best 2012s I've tasted so far. The wine is rich, complex and will keep evolving for a long time. Mocha, coffee, dark red fruit, exotic spices on the nose, followed by a palate that's layered with complex flavors. This is a stunner.

    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. Perfect size for birth year gift.
    Drink from 2020 to 2030
