Reviews for 2011 Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, January 2014
This white feels almost like a red, with dense fruit, chewy texture and lots of phenolic character. Intense finish. Powerful young wine. Give it three to four years. Try in 2017.

Intense white peach green apricot pear nectar and talcum powder on the complex nose. The palate shows slightly austere flavors of fresh citrus and gooseberry complemented by rosemary and sage. Finishes long and pure with polished wood tannins. This very serious extremely well made white wine will age effortlessly thanks to its luminous acidity.

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... 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.

Barrel fermented in 50% new and 50% one-year-old oak. Packed with aromas of honey beeswax lemon oil white peach and orange rind. Beautifully complex and richly textured on the palate this is layered with notes of fennel and chalk but still bright and focused. Vibrant and fresh with persistent acidity driving lingering mineral flavors. Wow! Drink now and over the next 10+ years.
