A blend of 80% Sauvignon and 20% Semillon that hit 14% natural alcohol this is serious wine boasting notes of lemon and lime marmalade intermixed with honeysuckle a whiff of freshly cut grass and a waxy melony character... A blend of 80% Sauvignon and 20% Semillon that hit 14% natural alcohol this is serious wine boasting notes of lemon and lime marmalade intermixed with honeysuckle a whiff of freshly cut grass and a waxy melony character. Aromatically complex this relatively big Malartic Lagraviere should drink well for up to 20 or more years. A great wine!

Big ripe and delicious this is packed with spice and sweet apricot fruits. It's full and opulent very much a wine of 2009 yet it retains its sense of balance and structure.

Subtle toasted brioche and blanched almond notes hold a core of heather white peach and green plum at bay for now. This finish is long and suave with nice buried cut. Should blossom with brief cellaring. Drink now through... Subtle toasted brioche and blanched almond notes hold a core of heather white peach and green plum at bay for now.

Aromas of salt air and minerals mix with notes of tart citrus as well as a hint of white pineapple. A bright high-acid release typical of the white wines from this property a worthy accomplishment considering the heat experienced by the domaine that summer. One of the better whites from the vintage.
