A perpetual over achiever from the Pessac-Leognan, the oldest wine-producing terroir in Bordeaux. This region of course is also home to First Growth Chateau Haut-Brion. Château Malartic-Lagravière's red wine in the outstanding 2010 vintage received raves including 95 points from James Suckling. A fabulous blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, Robert Parker scored it 94 points saying "Lead pencil shavings, soy and barbecue smoke as well as red and black currants characterize this brilliant effort, which has an expansive, full-bodied mouthfeel yet a sublime elegance and lightness of being. Dense ruby/purple, gorgeous purity and a long, long finish of close to 50 seconds characterize another brilliant effort from this classified growth in Pessac-Leognan. It should drink nicely for 25-30 years yet is surprisingly accessible even today."
