Château Malartic Lagraviere fait partie des stars de l'appellation Pessac-Léognan.
Aromas of sweet black cherries interwoven with notions of tapenade, loamy soil, smoke, and charcoal emerge from this medium-bodied, elegant, stylish offering. While not terribly concentrated, it is charming as well as refreshingly delicate yet authoritatively flavored. Sweet tannin and a silky style suggest it may put on weight and merit a higher score in several more years. It should keep for 12-18 years.
