Under the leadership of the Bonnie family, the majestic Château Malartic-Lagravière has experienced a spectacular growth. This Grand Cru Classé of Graves enjoys an exceptional location, with its vineyard superbly situated on an outcropping of gravel. Home to state-of-the-art technical facilities, Château Malartic-Lagravière shines bright within its appellation with white and red wines that stand out among the most beautiful of Pessac-Léognan.
Château Malartic-Lagravière white is a Pessac-Léognan wine made from a terroir composed of dry gravel and clay soils. The subsoil is made up of shell limestone and veins of clay.
Following a cool, wet summer, the magnificent late season enabled the teams to harvest grapes that were perfectly ripe and in very good condition. Aromatic freshness, sugars, density and acidity, all the conditions contributed to the birth to an exceptional vintage.
Sauvignon Blanc (85%)
The colour is a beautiful pale yellow with green highlights.
The fine and elegant nose possesses a great aromatic power. The purity of the white fruit, peach and pear aromas entwine with the acidic freshness of the citrus notes.
The lively and concentrated palate exudes an alluring purity, power and a persistent finish.
A stunning blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon, this medium-bodied wine offers up hints of citrus oil, orange zest and honeyed grapefruit. It should drink well for a decade.
