Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

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!

Neal Martin

Tasted at the Union de Grand Cru in London. This has a wonderful, almost Burgundy-like bouquet with very expressive mineralite. Crushed stone, a touch of apple-blossom and dried flowers with deftly integrated new oak. The palate is well balanced with a crisp entry, not quite as entrancing as the nose at this point, but the mineralite really comes through towards the tense finish. Excellent. Tasted October 2011.

[80SV/20SM] Pale lemon; light quava and mineral Sauvignon, persistent, subtly aromatic; very nicely balanced, freshly aromatic, juicily ripe midweight wine; appetisingly fresh, well sustained flavours, good aromatic projection and tenacity for the year, and excellent length; not big but complete. An excellent 09, 2012-18+
