K&L Notes

92-94 points Neal Martin in Vinous: "The 2018 Malartic-Lagravière was tasted in Bordeaux, where I was not happy with the sample bottle that came across perplexingly green. The château sent two bottles so that I could re-taste them at home and these bore none of those traits. It has an intense bouquet with copious red cherry, blackcurrant and blueberry fruit. Monitoring over an hour it evolves attractive floral scents of lavender and iris flowers. The palate is medium-bodied, the new oak quite prominent on the entry though there is sufficient fruit to back it up. This is a more sumptuous Malartic Lagravière, armed with impressive density towards the finish." (04/2019)

    This is opulent with dark, purple, plummy fruit, toast and notes of licorice, mocha and herbs. The tannins are soft and elegant up front and then become more grippy on the finish, adding to the structure given by the balancing acidity. Great graphite and minerals underscore the ripe fruit.

    Very ripe and fruity upfront but lots of structure and tannin. Masculine wine and one for the cellar. 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot

    I'll have to admit, Malartic-Lagraviere grew on me as the week wend on. If our tasting at the property was any indication, this is a brilliant vintage for them, and one of the better buys in all of Pessac for 2018. As with many 2018s, there is a lot of deep black fruits in this wine, but a mouthwatering acidity and thread of minerality keeps it fresh. A compact core hints at a potential for great things over the years, but it might require patience to get there. But at the price point, it's hard to ask for much more.
