The 2011 Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc has a superb bouquet, with vigorous aromas of lime, kiwi fruit and dewy green apples. It has real intensity and great definition. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine balance, light white peach and a touch of spice and offering a pleasant, quite phenolic finish that just cuts away rather quickly. I believe this will show better after bottling. Tasted April 2012. The Wine Advocate
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.
