Chateau Malartic Lagraviere

An Outstanding Graves
2015 Chateau Malartic Lagraviere...$61.99
Grand Cru Classe Graves
The 2015 Malartic Lagravière is just as fabulous from bottle as it was from barrel. Rich, voluptuous and dramatic, it captures all of the natural intensity of the year. Black cherry, plum, mocha, chocolate, licorice and French oak build into a crescendo of stunning aromas, flavors and textures. This is in an especially dark, sumptuous style, but it all works beautifully. The 2015 was positively thrilling each of the three times I tasted it.
Rated 96+/100 Antonio Galloni Vinous
Rated 96/100 James Suckling
