Live Wine Tasting
with Jean-Jacques Bonnie
Join Jean-Jacques Bonnie of Château Malartic-Lagravière and Hortense Bernard of Millesima USA for a special live tasting of three Bonnie Family Wines on
Saturday September 19th, 2020 at 11.30. (EST).
At the end of 1996, the Bonnie family acquired Château Malartic-Lagravière Grand Cru Classé. The evocative name of ‘Lagravière’ underlines the great quality manifest in the soils of this vineyard, reputed for its location on the finest gravel hillock in Léognan. Ten years later, the Bonnie family decided to leave France in search of new horizons in the world of wine. Thus, a “diamond” was born in the Uco Valley of Argentina. From Bordeaux to Mendoza, Vignobles Malartic’s teams, henceforth led by Jean-Jacques Bonnie, work with passion and precision to produce, vintage after vintage, refined, intense, complex wines, for the pleasure of wine enthusiasts all over the world! On september the 19th, Millésima and Jean-Jacques Bonnie offer you the opportunity to live an extraordinary wine experience through the discovery of wines from the old and new continents of the Bonnie family. For an hour Jean-Jacques and Hortense will animate the virtual tasting.Online registration
Here is the selection of the tasted wines!
96 WINE SPECTATOR
Rich, voluptuous and dramatic, it captures all of the natural intensity of the year. Black cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate, licorice and French oak build into a crescendo of stunning aromas, flavors and textures. This is in an especially dark, sumptuous style, but it all works beautifully.
94 JAMES SUCKLING
A solid red with blackberries, black olives, sweet tobacco and hints of toasted oak. Medium to full body. Serious malbec and cabernet sauvignon blend with muscular length
91 JAMES SUCKLING
An attractive syrah with dried-meat and blackberry character. Hints of bark and crushed stone. Medium body and firm tannins. Straight and linear.
