2019 Château Malartic-Lagravière Rouge
A vintage with all the hallmarks of the great years. The freshness and balance of the vintage are combined with dazzling fruit and a velvety texture. This vintage was characterized by quite extreme weather conditions. The spring was particularly wet,
but mild weather at the end of May-beginning of June ensured good flowering. July brought two heat waves, followed in both cases by favorable rain. The summer was sunny with a classic Bordeaux August. A fantastic late season allowed the Cabernets' tannins to continue to ripen and reach optimum ripeness. The white wines present an exceptional quality. The cool August period produced excellently balanced grapes that beautifully emphasize the aromatic profiles.
The 2019 vintage of the Malartic Lagraviere Pessac-Léognan Grand Cru Classé de Graves is a blend of 55.9% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41.3% Merlot and 2.8% Cabernet Franc. The Château Malartic-Lagravière Rouge has very complex aromas of dark berries, mushrooms, earth, flowers and incense and some mineral notes. Full bodied in the mouth with very fine, refined tannins. The finish is very, very long and persistent with subtle and complex flavours. This ensures beauty for decades. Give it a little more time to mature further (from 2025).

Ch. Malartic Lagravière, together with Ch. Smith Haut Lafitte, Dom. de Chevalier and Ch. Haut Bailly is one of the leaders in the Pessac Léognan appellation. Thanks to the Belgian owner Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie, who invested immensely, and the advice of Michel Rolland, the cru has improved spectacularly over the last 5 years. The magnificent terroir located in the heart of Léognan naturally also plays a major role.
