    2014 Pessac-Leognan, Cru Classé from Bordeaux

    In 2014, the harvest of the red grapes ended on October 21st under sunshine in Malartic-Lagravière. The Merlots are dense, round, opulent and offer volume. Very homogeneous, they create a true Malartic style. The Cabernets are straight, pure and long, with vibrant fruit and a present sucrosity. The tannins are voluminous and supple. This wine has every element to be complete and serious. This 2014 Cru Classé Malartic-Lagravière gives off strong notes of blackberry, smashed strawberry enhanced by light spicy and mainly peppery notes. On the palate, this Pessac-Leognan is very pleasant on tannins and is full-bodied. The finish, slightly toasted, is vibrant. This is a sappy wine.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 Malartic-Lagraviere had quite a high-toned, upfront bouquet with kirsch, crushed strawberry, iodine and iris scents that do not hold back. The 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. Though it will be overshadowed by the 2015, this is a well-crafted Pessac-Léognan with the chutzpah that it showed in barrel.
