The second label of Grand Cru Classé Chateau Malartic-Lagravières, Pessac-Léognan. The 2015 La Reserve de Malartic offers all the ripeness afforded by the warm 2015 vintage. Made with a slightly higher proportion of Merlot in the blend than the grand vin, this is meant to be approachable at a younger age and drinkable over the near term. Big, bold, black-fruited, with a deft seasoning of oak, this is sure to please. 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet-Franc.
