Situated for centuries on the finest gravel hilltop in Léognan, the estate covers 73 hectares (180 acres), including 7 hectares (17 acres) of vines for white wine. Famous all over the world for its intense, complex, and elegant wines, Château Malartic-Lagravière is one of only six estates in Bordeaux classified for both its white and red wines. Its red and white wines, both the first growth and the second wine, reflect Malartic’s ancestral terroir. They offer refinement and elegance on the palate, accompanied by a complexity and generosity that reveal the diversity and excellence of its terroir. The Château has gained an international reputation for its wines, which are often described as “haute-couture”. Harmonious, elegant and richly flavoured, they are appreciated on the finest tables.
Beautiful pale golden yellow tinged with green. The well-developed minerally bouquet, with a hint of woodiness, develops aromas of citrus and white-fleshed fruit, with a hint of honey and almonds. On the palate, the attack is powerful and lively, with good structure and superb volume. This is a precise, complex wine with the lingering fruit aromas typical of great Sauvignons. The overall impression is of harmony, balance and great purity. A very seductive wine, characterized by its depth and highly individual expression of the Sauvignon grape.
