Decanter: Rich but energetic, with gooseberry, fennel and yellow apple notes forming the core, offset by bracing salted butter and thyme accents. 91 - 94 Points

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Malartic Lagraviere Blanc is a blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon that was picked from 8-15 September and matured in 65% new oak. It has a crisp, vibrant, quite minerally bouquet, cold limestone and subtle patisserie/almost whipped cream-like scents. The palate is very well defined with a crisp line of acidity, citrus lemon and lime fanning out with confidence on the finish that completes one of the best Malartic-Lagravière whites that I have encountered at this stage. 94 - 96 Points
Ratings
Jancis Robinson: Smells sweeter than most of its peers. Not quite the attack and acidity that I'd like but good extract. Likely to be early maturing? Drink 2017-2020 16
Awards
James Suckling: A fresh white with sliced green apple, lemon rind and cream. Full body, bright acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Layered and very dense. Wonderful backbone. 95 - 96 Points
Other Notes
Château Malartic-Lagravière sits on a high terrace deeply etched by the Eau Blanche stream and its tributaries. It sits on 8-meter-deep deposits of gravelly soil dating from the Quaternary period. The evocative name of "Lagravière" underlines the great quality manifest in the soils of this vineyard. The vines for the white wine are 80 percent Sauvignon Blanc, 20 percent Sémillon.
