2017 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1359070 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Attractive, fresh-lemon and grassy nuances with wild herbs and slightly flinty elements, too. The palate has such intense and fresh acidity. Fine lemons and limes and a thrillingly dry, long finish. Inner quote mark (1/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is crisp, fruity and zesty, with a mineral texture. Its herbal character dominates, bringing in green fruits and a beautiful grassy character. (RV) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

91-94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Really bracing and pure right now, featuring lively lime zest, kiwifruit and tarragon notes. The long, rapierlike finish lingers, with mouthwatering chive and sel gris accents. (JM, Web Only-2018) Inner quote mark

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc has a very impressive bouquet with flinty, citrus fruit that evolves more discrete tropical scents with aeration, hints of dried honey, lime and mango emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, quite saline in the mouth and fine weight. A precise and quite sustained finish. This has great potential and it may improve with continued bottle age. That said, it will be irresistible in its youth. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Powerful and intense, this has clear Sauvignon character without being grassy. There's excellent depth of expression and a bright, zippy character that leads you through the palate. High, bright aromatics and great persistency. Drinking Window 2019-2030. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Echo De Lynch-Bages offers a juicy, yet classic Cabernet Sauvignon bouquet of creme de cassis, graphite, spring flowers, sappy herbs, and hints of cedary and earth. Medium-bodied, elegant, beautifully balanced, and with fine tannins, it's ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years. Inner quote mark (2/2020)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The tentative blend of the 2017 Blanc is 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon. It opens with pretty lemon curd, white peach and fresh pineapple notes with suggestions of honeysuckle and mandarin peel. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh and zippy with wonderful purity and a long, zesty finish. (LPB) 90-92+ Inner quote mark (4/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark The pear fruit is all tied up in the oak on the nose giving an embryonic complexity. Rich and deep and so fresh. Impressive concentration and balance between crisp acidity and fruit sweetness. 16.5/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
