Château Malartic Lagravière

Domaine de Lagravière set on the oldest terroir of the Bordeaux vineyards was purchased at the end of the 18th century by the family of Maurès de Malartic.

The sight, intense cherry. Toffee smell, followed by coffee smell. Fleshy and a chocolate coulant taste.

The vintage 2011 was hand-picked. This wine is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot. After the blending, the maturation lasts 16 to 22 months in oak barrels.
The hue of this vintage is sumptuous. It presents a garnet colour with deep and intense black reflexions.
The nose opens on delicate notes of flowers and more powerful notes like toast flavours.
The palate of this wine is powerful, complex and elegant. An invigorating attack opening on a round and mouth filling mid-palate with notes of fruits and liquorice. The tannins are mellow and blended. The finish shows a remarkable lengh and the black fruits aromas last in the mouth during a few seconds.
Drink or keep: 2016 - 2031Delicious with: Pork with prunes
