2014 Pessac-Leognan, Cru Classé from Bordeaux

In 2014, the harvest of the red grapes ended on October 21st under sunshine in Malartic-Lagravière. The Merlots are dense, round, opulent and offer volume. Very homogeneous, they create a true Malartic style. The Cabernets are straight, pure and long, with vibrant fruit and a present sucrosity. The tannins are voluminous and supple. This wine has every element to be complete and serious. This 2014 Cru Classé Malartic-Lagravière gives off strong notes of blackberry, smashed strawberry enhanced by light spicy and mainly peppery notes. On the palate, this Pessac-Leognan is very pleasant on tannins and is full-bodied. The finish, slightly toasted, is vibrant. This is a sappy wine. 



Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château Malartic-Lagravière 2014 is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, representing just 42% of the crop. Yields came in at 42 hectoliters per hectare and the wine underwent a 28 cuvaison. Matured in 70% new oak, it has quite a rich bouquet with blackberry and iodine scents, well defined and turning quite floral with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with bold, ripe tannins, good depth of fruit with tarry, structured finish. It is a bold Malartic with a bit of chutzpah, though I suspect that it will mellow and attain more finesse with a few years in bottle.
