The Sauvignon Blanc-based 2015 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc is fresh, energetic and vibrant, with plenty of green apple, mint and white pepper overtones. Varietal Sauvignon character is front and center in this gorgeous dry white. The 2015 was fermented in barrel (65% new), and yet the oak is judiciously balanced. This is a striking wine from Malartic-Lagravière. The blend is 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

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.

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. Mar 2016, JamesSuckling.com

Rich but energetic, with gooseberry, fennel and yellow apple notes forming the core, offset by bracing salted butter and thyme accents. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

Smoky nose and very citrus on the palate. Very appetising. Polished and juicy. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2018-2023

One of the stealth wines of the vintage, where the acidity – here zingy lime zest – builds slowly over the course of the palate, along with good tension and savoury herbs. Grasps on to the available freshness in the grapes and run with it. A lovely wine that will develop. Apr 2016, Jane Anson, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2017-2027

Refined and understated, as it was in 2014, this is one of the whites of the vintage. Aromatic and alluring, with notes of sea breeze and oyster shell, subtle spicy oak and a backbone of tangy acidity. Impressive stuff from a château that continues to improve.
