Sipping Fine Wine

Château Malartic-Lagravière is one of the only six classified growths both for its red and white in Bordeaux. A blend of 53% Cab Sauv, 35% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot & 5% Cab Franc, aged 18 months in French oak, 80% new. Rich and dark with berry aromas, complex and enticing. On the palate perfectly ripe blackberry and cherry with earthy dried herbs, some cacao and toasty spice. Fine dusty tannins, well balanced with acidity building to a great finish. Very special.

One of my favorite wine discoveries this year. Blackberry, mushroom, green pepper, seared meat. Drinking fine now wit a little breathing but has the structure to develop.

17/20 (92/100) Красивый, насыщенный аромат с нотами вишневого и черничного варенья, кассиса, кедра, ментола, шоколада и легкой травянистой нотой, которая, впрочем, даёт вину ощущение свежести. Тельное, высокая кислотность и интенсивные, вяжущие танины. Ягодное во вкусе, есть некоторое ощущение сладости. Молодое и свежее бордо.
