Château Malartic Lagravière, white
Growth of the Graves
Domaine de Lagravière, recognized since time immemorial for its excellent terroir, was one of only six properties in Bordeaux to enter the 1953 Graves classification for both its red and white wines.
Château Malartic-Lagravière is located on a high terrace that has been deeply scored by a stream known as the Eau Blanche, and its tributaries. It is formed over a depth of eight meters of small islands of gravel dating from the quaternary era.

The 2014 vintage offers a pale yellow color with pretty sparkling reflections. The nose is pure and very expressive, rich in aromas of white peach, grapefruit, lemon and even fresh pineapple. The palate is well balanced, complex and allows to appreciate very pleasant notes of almonds and orange zest. The acidity is perfectly controlled. The finish is long and refreshing. A good aging potential for this vintage!
“Very vibrant lemons and limes with tropical fruit. Hints of mangeso and melon. The palate has silky, smooth fruit with seamless build and flow. Impressive. 85% sauvignon and 15% semillon. Drink or hold.” – James Suckling

This wine has an intense, fresh and expressive nose. The wide aromatic palette reveals notes of lemon, apricot, white-fleshed fruits and verbena. The density and volume on the palate are supported by a beautiful acidity. The finish offers complexity and freshness.
“The Latour Martillac 2017 Blanc sings of warm apples, fresh nectarines and green guava with touches of coriander seed and fresh ginger. The palate is medium-bodied, crisp and intense with a long finish.” – Wine Advocate
