The 2015 Malartic Lagraviere Blanc is a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon that was picked from 8-15 September and matured in 65% new oak. It has a crisp, vibrant, quite minerally bouquet, cold limestone and subtle patisserie/almost whipped cream-like scents. The palate is very well defined with a crisp line of acidity, citrus lemon and lime fanning out with confidence on the finish that completes one of the best Malartic-Lagravière whites that I have encountered at this stage.
The Malartic Lagraviere 2015 Blanc, a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Sémillon, fermented in barrels, 65% of which were new and 35% of which were one year old, and the wine remained in barrel on its lees for 12 months. It features lovely lime juice, lemon zest and green apple notes with fresh straw and crushed stones plus a hint of white blossoms. The medium-bodied palate is fine, racy and refreshing with great intensity and length.
