The 2015 vintage of Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc is a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon. This wine is crisp and refreshing with succulent length and full of juicy citrus fruit and green apple with undertones of sweet vanilla. This is ready to drink with light seafood, but there is room for growth over a couple of years! 

Information About Chateau Malartic Lagravieres

Formerly the Domaine de Lagraviere, Chateau Malartic Lagraviere has been the property of Michele and Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie since 1997 who initially lacked experience of any kind in the wine trade. They invested close to €20 million in the estate, modernising it inside and out, as well as expanding the vineyards and engaging with new sustainable farming methods. Additionally, more rigorous grape selection processes for the Grand Vin were adopted, leading to far superior quality than previous vintages.

Chateau Malartic Lagraviere represents 53 hectares of vineyards. 46 hectares are devoted to red grapes, 45% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and to 2% Petit Verdot. The remaining 7 hectares are planted to 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon.

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.

Rating : 94-96/100

One of the stealth wines of the vintage, where the acidity – here zingy lime zest – builds slowly over the course of the palate, along with good tension and savoury herbs. Grasps on to the available freshness in the grapes and run with it. A lovely wine that will develop.

The Sauvignon Blanc-based 2015 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc is fresh, energetic and vibrant, with plenty of green apple, mint and white pepper overtones. Varietal Sauvignon character is front and center in this gorgeous dry white. The 2015 was fermented in barrel (65% new), and yet the oak is judiciously balanced. This is a striking wine from Malartic-Lagravière. The blend is 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon.

Slightly fuller in colour thank the 2016 though still very pale. The nose has a hint of wild garlic, nice and fresh, this is clean and rich, lovely texture on the palate, cool really delicious fruit concentration and depth. Fine richness. Possibly lacks the acidity of the 2014 but bound to be very enjoyable.
