A fresh white with sliced green apple, lemon rind and cream. Full body, bright acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Layered and very dense. Wonderful backbone.

The 2015 Malartic Lagraviere Blanc is a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon that was picked from 8-15 September and matured in 65% new oak. It has a crisp, vibrant, quite minerally bouquet, cold limestone and subtle patisserie/almost whipped cream-like scents. The palate is very well defined with a crisp line of acidity, citrus lemon and lime fanning out with confidence on the finish that completes one of the best Malartic-Lagravière whites that I have encountered at this stage.

Rich and opulent, these grapes basked in the ripeness of the year. It is balanced and beautifully perfumed, with citrus and crisp apple acidity, just hinting at wood at the end.

The Sauvignon Blanc-based 2015 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc is fresh, energetic and vibrant, with plenty of green apple, mint and white pepper overtones. Varietal Sauvignon character is front and center in this gorgeous dry white. The 2015 was fermented in barrel (65% new), and yet the oak is judiciously balanced. This is a striking wine from Malartic-Lagravière. The blend is 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon.

Rich but energetic, with gooseberry, fennel and yellow apple notes forming the core, offset by bracing salted butter and thyme accents.
