RATINGS

96Wine Enthusiast

...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.

94James Suckling

So perfumed with a freshness and beauty that is amazing. Blackberries, black cherries and violets. Full-bodied yet so polished and velvety. Gorgeous finish.

92The Wine Advocate

...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.

92Vinous / IWC

...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.

91Wine Spectator

Very solid, with a core of dark plum, blackberry and fig preserve notes... Ample singed apple wood and cocoa elements form the frame.

91Jeb Dunnuck

..vibrant aromatics of cherries, mulberries, red plums, exotic flowers, and lead pencil shavings. Medium-bodied and beautifully polished and elegant...

17Jancis Robinson

Rich, buttery nose. Very broad and smooth on the nose but still pretty dry tannins.

REGION

France, Bordeaux, Graves, Pessac-Léognan

Pessac-Léognan was created in 1987 from the northern part of the left bank Graves appellation. Before then it was simply part of Graves, or sometimes it was called Haut-Graves. Unlike many other Bordeaux appellations, Pessac-Léognan is known for both red and dry white wines, although its reds are more famous. The appellation includes ten communes and the area’s most important châteaux, including Château Haut-Brion, the only non-Médoc estate included in the 1855 Bordeaux classification. There are 2,964 acres of vineyards in Pessac-Léognan and 16 classified growth estates. The main red grapes grown are Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, along with a small amount of Cabernet Franc. White grapes grown are Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with a little Muscadelle. Pessac-Léognan is considered to have the best terroir of the greater Graves region.
