4 /5

Paired with snacks and we really liked this Pessac-Léognan. Me and my clients from Pessac-Léognan have taste it together.
The Château Malartic la Graviere Rouge has a red cherry colour. Pleasant smell of tea. It felt too acidic of a Pessac-Léognan.

4/5

Former estate of Malartic, Château Malartic Lagravière is named after Count Hippolyte of Malartic, famous admiral of the kings of France in the eighteenth century. The property belongs since 1996 to the Bonnie family.
The 53 hectares of this Pessac-Léognan extend over a magnificent severe croup. The grape varieties of red is made from 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot.
The wines are aged in oak barrels (50 to 70% new) for 15 to 22 months.
This Château Malartic Lagravière 2012 presents a purple dress. The nose offers aromas of blackcurrant and liquorice, underlined with a hint of smoke. A balanced wine, dense and in length.

Lagravière the field, has always been known for the quality of its soil, is purchased from the late eighteenth century by the family of Count Maurès Hippolyte of Malartic. The property was bought in 1850 by Mrs. Arnaud Ricard accola name Malartic than Lagravière in tribute to the former owners. Enjoying a high reputation since the beginning of last century, the castle Lagravière-Malartic is one of only six classified growths in both white and red when ranking Graves 1953. In late 1996, the castle takes a new direction with the arrival of the Bonnie family.
The Malartic Lagravière castle is located on a high terrace deeply cut by the stream of White Water and its tributaries. It consists of 8 meters deep with gravel islands dating from the Quaternary period.
The evocative name of "Lagravière" underlines the high quality soil of this vineyard, known to be located on the most beautiful gravel rump of Léognan.
