TASTING NOTES

"Very vibrant lemons and limes with tropical fruit. Hints of mangos and melon. The palate has silky, smooth fruit with seamless build and flow. Impressive. 85% sauvignon and 15% semillon. Drink or hold." JamesSuckling.com

"The Malartic Lagraviere 2015 Blanc, a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Sémillon, fermented in barrels, 65% of which were new and 35% of which were one year old, and the wine remained in barrel on its lees for 12 months. It features lovely lime juice, lemon zest and green apple notes with fresh straw and crushed stones plus a hint of white blossoms. The medium-bodied palate is fine, racy and refreshing with great intensity and length." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Interim Issue

"The 2015 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc has turned out nicely. The warm vintage has amped up the flavors, and yet there is a good bit of freshness as well. Melon, lime peel and white flowers gain in resonance with time in the glass. There is a fair amount of up-front power and resonance, although some of that tapers off on the finish. I liked the 2015 a little more from barrel than from bottle. The blend is 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Sémillon." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Juicy, with a lightly toasted macadamia nut note around the core of creamed white peach, star fruit and lemon curd flavors. Due to the richness, this leans more toward the flattering style, though this retains enough acidity for balance. Drink now through 2020. 1,583 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Potent, pungent nose, which has both sharp grassy notes but a strong buttery character too. Reasonably full body, high acidity, crunchy lemon fruit with long persistence and plenty of vanilla spice on the length. Finishes with a saline note." Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com
