    Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere white 2016: A dense Pessac-Leognan

    Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere white 2016 is a Classified Growth produced in Pessac-Leognan. The estate has 7 hectares of white grape varieties planted. The vines, on average 31 years old, are planted on gravel, clay and limestone. Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere white 2016 is a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon. The wine is aged on lees in oak barrels (55% in new barrels). 

    The 2016 vintage's summer began in late June, and was very dry and hot. The vines had no problem dealing with such adversity. On September 13th, the rain allowed the grapes to terminate their maturation. Harvest started on September 19th and lasted until the 27th.

    Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere white 2016 is remarkably acidic, giving the wine a unique balance. The nose is aromatically enticing and the taste is beautifully dense

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The Malartic Lagraviere 2016 Blanc is a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Sémillon. The nose is youthfully muted, revealing subtle scents of lemongrass, crushed rocks, lime cordial and green mango with a waft of orange blossoms. Medium-bodied, the palate features great intensity with a lively backbone and long, textured finish.
