Winemaker Notes

Both the Sauvignon and the Sémillon were of excellent quality. They are aromatic, with a beautiful smoothness and intensity.
Blend: 75% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting. The 2012 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc has a very attractive bouquet, armed with expressive Sauvignon Blanc scents: gooseberry, greengage and a touch of honeysuckle. The palate is clean and fresh with a veneer of oak that will be subsumed with time. I appreciate the balance and poise of this wine, that dab of ginger on the finish that leaves the tongue tingling long after the wine has gone. What a fantastic, life-affirming, damn delicious white Bordeaux from the estate - this comes highly recommended. Tasted January 2016.

James Suckling
A gorgeous white with white truffles, sliced apples and hints of fennel character. Full body, bright acidity and a clean and chalky, stony finish. Excellent.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Offers a creamy, flattering feel, with melon, sweetened butter and straw notes, inlaid with flickers of fleur de sel and white asparagus, keeping this honest through the finish. Delivers a lingering stony echo.

Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere, France
Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere Winery Image

Chateau Malartic-Lagravière is one of the only six classified growths both for its red and white in Bordeaux.

The Domaine de Lagravière, famed since time immemorial for its excellent terroir and this famous "hillock" of gravel. In honor of the Count Hippolyte of Malartic, admiral who served the Kings of France and owner of the Domaine in the 18th Century, the Chateau was renamed Malartic-Lagraviere. Bought by Michèle and Alfred-Alexandre Bonnie at the end of 1996, the 53 hectares (131 acres) estate, including 7 hectares (17 acres) of white, has been completely renovated: both vineyard and technical facilities benefit from highest standards of equipment and methods of work (integrated farming, entirely gravity process…). As a result, Malartic-Lagravière is now renowned as being among the best wines in Bordeaux.

Bordeaux, France

Recognized for its superior reds as well as whites, Pessac-Léognan on the Left Bank claims classified growths for both—making it quite unique in comparison to its neighboring Médoc properties.

Pessac’s Chateau Haut-Brion, the only first growth located outside of the Médoc, is said to have been the first to conceptualize fine red wine in Bordeaux back in the late 1600s. The estate, along with its high-esteemed neighbors, La Mission Haut-Brion, Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pique-Caillou and Chateau Pape-Clément are today all but enveloped by the city of Bordeaux. The rest of the vineyards of Pessac-Léognan are in clearings of heavily forested area or abutting dense suburbs.

Arid sand and gravel on top of clay and limestone make the area unique and conducive to growing Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc as well as the grapes in the usual Left Bank red recipe: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and miniscule percentages of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The best reds will show great force and finesse with inky blue and black fruit, mushroom, forest, tobacco, iodine and a smooth and intriguing texture.

Its best whites show complexity, longevity and no lack of exotic twists on citrus, tropical and stone fruit with pronounced floral and spice characteristics.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
