...great acidity as well as a lively structure. Touched by spice from wood aging as well as intense citrus, it is fruity, firm and strongly textured.
So perfumed with a freshness and beauty that is amazing. Blackberries, black cherries and violets. Full-bodied yet so polished and velvety. Gorgeous finish.
...quite a high-toned, upfront bouquet with kirsch, crushed strawberry, iodine and iris scents...palate is rounded on the entry with supple tannin, possesses slightly lower acidity than its peers yet remains balanced. There is impressive depth to this Malartic-Lagravière with a subtle white pepper/sage note towards the finish.
...crisp and focused bouquet with precise blackberry and briary scents, a lovely undercurrent of mineralité...palate is beautifully balanced on the entry with rounded, quite concentrated black fruit.
Very solid, with a core of dark plum, blackberry and fig preserve notes... Ample singed apple wood and cocoa elements form the frame.
..vibrant aromatics of cherries, mulberries, red plums, exotic flowers, and lead pencil shavings. Medium-bodied and beautifully polished and elegant...
Rich, buttery nose. Very broad and smooth on the nose but still pretty dry tannins.
