2014 Malartic-Lagravière, Pessac-Léognan 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1427243 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Tight tannins mask the ripe fruit in a wine that is set for long-term aging, so there is a dry core that dominates at the moment. But not for long: the bold black fruits are insistent and are going to be delicious. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark So perfumed with a freshness and beauty that is amazing. Blackberries, black cherries and violets. Full-bodied yet so polished and velvety. Gorgeous finish. A beauty. Best ever in bottle from here? Inner quote mark (2/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2014 Malartic-Lagravière is a gorgeous wine, but it is also flamboyant and exotic, especially in its flavor profile. Super-ripe red cherry and plum make a strong first impression. Sweet floral and spice notes, along with ripe, silky tannins, add to the wine's sensuality. A rich, powerful wine with soft contours and striking depth, the 2014 is a real beauty. It will be even more compelling once the new oak tannins soften a bit further. (AG) 94+ points Inner quote mark (2/2017)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Clear breeding and ambition. Damson, pencil lead and wet stone aroma. Full extraction, more than most but without losing vibrancy and grip. An excellent 2014 -- the fruit floats above the tannins, one to wait for. 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Malartic-Lagraviere had quite a high-toned, upfront bouquet with kirsch, crushed strawberry, iodine and iris scents that do not hold back. The palate is rounded on the entry with supple tannin, possesses slightly lower acidity than its peers yet remains balanced. There is impressive depth to this Malartic-Lagravière with a subtle white pepper/sage note towards the finish. Though it will be overshadowed by the 2015, this is a well-crafted Pessac-Léognan with the chutzpah that it showed in barrel. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A terrific success in the vintage, the 2014 Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere is a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot that was brought up in 70% new oak. Hitting 13.5% natural alcohol, it offers a vibrant ruby/purple color as well as vibrant aromatics of cherries, mulberries, red plums, exotic flowers, and lead pencil shavings. Medium-bodied and beautifully polished and elegant, with solid acidity, it’s a juicy, vibrant, fresh 2014 that’s going to drink nicely for 15-20 years. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very solid, with a core of dark plum, blackberry and fig preserve notes held in check by tarry grip. Ample singed apple wood and cocoa elements form the frame. Give this time to meld fully. Best from 2019 through 2026. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2017)
