"The 2014 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc has an attractive bouquet with scents of lemon rind, yellow flowers and pine kernels. The oak is neatly integrated here. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity and a brisk, saline finish. This shows great potential, to drink now if you are inclined, or tuck away for several years. Tasted blind at the annual Southwold tasting."

The Domaine de Lagravière, famed since time immemorial for its excellent terroir and this famous "hillock" of gravel. In honour of the Count Hippolyte of Malartic, admiral who served the Kings of France and owner of the Domaine in the 18th Century, the Château was renamed Malartic-Lagraviere.
Bought by Michèle and Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie at the end of 1996, the estate has been completely renovated. All the conditions have been united to make Malartic-Lagravière's wines worthy of their place amongst the greatest Bordeaux: a terroir and vineyard of high standards, innovative and high performance equipment devoted entirely to traditional winemaking methods, and a committed and passionate team. One of the only six classified growths both for its red and white, Château Malartic-Lagravière's wines are well known all over the world for their complexity, power, elegance and balance.
