Vivid, expressive, juicy and concentrated, the 2011 Malartic Lagraviere comes from good-sized estate of 131 acres, of which 17 are dedicated to their excellent white wine. Made from a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with a supple, medium to full-bodied texture with no hard edges, an opulence and exuberance that provide lots of seductiveness, and tell-tale notes of burning embers, charcoal, kirsch liqueur and black currant fruit. Drink this impressive 2011 over the next two decades. Only 55% of the production made it into the grand vin. The natural alcohol is 13.5%. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The 2011 Malartic Lagraviere has a ripe blackberry and mulberry scented bouquet with good fruit extraction and purity, perhaps a little more refined than the de Fieuzal tasted alongside. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy, almost mouth puckering tannins. It is missing a little fruit in the middle and the finish is showing a touch of hardness and obduracy. Another sample was showing better lightness of touch and harmony and I suspect that this is more representative. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Bright wine with currant, mineral, stoney and citrus character. Medium to full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Balance wine. Little more flesh on the bones would be better. jamessuckling.com

Good tarry style, with plum skin and briar notes lending a grippy edge while the core of blackberry and crushed black cherry lies in reserve. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Finely concentrated Cabernet cassis with a leafy lift, tannins a bit green, but good depth of elegant aromatic fruit to show through. Drink 2016-2030. Decanter.com

This is an elegant Pessac Leognan but has the depth and firm tannin profile for long term ageing. The palate is round and plush with ripe tannins. The flavours range from violets to cherries and plums. Well crafted wine with a long finish. AsianPalate.com
