Media Reviews

Jane Anson

There`s great focus on the nose here, with scents of lemon, slate, white peach and rosemary. It`s definitely one of the whites with a higher level of freshness, and feels well made and carefully judged. They have achieved success in both colours in 2018, especially with the red. 55% new oak. 92 points

Julia Harding

90% Sauvignon Blanc, 10% Sémillon; 55% new oak. Strong aroma of fermentation, almost hoppy and definitely herbal. Leesy on the palate, slightly odd but certainly interesting if just a little sour on the finish. 15.5 points

Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Fermented in 55% new barrels and blended of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon, the 2018 Malartic Lagraviere 2018 Blanc is a little closed to start, soon opening on the nose to reveal ripe apples, Bosc pears and warm peach scents with hints of wet pebbles and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is packed with apple and pear flavors with just enough freshness and an oily texture, finishing long and spicy. 91-93 points

Antonio Galloni

One of the few compelling whites of the vintage, the 2018 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc offers an intriguing combination of energy and textural depth. Green apple, pear, crushed rocks, citrus and floral notes build in an expressive white that has so much to offer. In 2018, the Blanc is 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon. 91-93 points
