Winemaker Notes

The Malartic 2020s are characterized by excellent density; their concentration is balanced by a remarkable freshness. The tannins are very sleek and elegant in this particularly well-balanced vintage. The reds, showing a very Cabernet style, develop superb aromatic power accompanied by tremendous freshness. With a silky and elegant structure, the palate is bright, lively, long and dense.

Blend: 78.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17.8% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

JS 93
James Suckling
Serious second wine with loads of blackberry and dark-earth character. Some bark, too. It’s full and layered. Lots of flavor and structure. Well done.
Barrel Sample: 92-93

Jeb Dunnuck
Lots of ripe darker fruits (blackberries/cassis), leafy herbs, and chocolate as well as classic Graves notes of gravelly earth emerge from the 2020 Le Comte De Malartic, which is medium to full-bodied, round, and up-front on the palate, with a soft, forward texture. Despite its up-front approachability, it should drink well for at least a good decade or more.
Barrel Sample: 90-92

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

This is the new name for the second wine of Malartic Lagraviere. The 2020 Le Comte de Malartic blend is 78.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17.8% Merlot and 4% Cabernet Franc, with an alcohol of 14.5%. Sporting a deep purple-black color, it rolls nonchalantly out of the glass with notes of plum preserves, warm cassis and redcurrant jelly, plus hints of pencil lead, mossy tree bark and ground black pepper. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers mouth-coating, uncomplicated, juicy black fruits, framed by lovely freshness and soft tannins, finishing with a peppery lift. Simply delicious! Barrel Sample: 88 - 90

Since acquiring Château Malartic-Lagravière in 1997, the Bonnie family has continued to work tirelessly, with passion and commitment, to perfect the estate’s wines and carry them to the highest level.

The estate used to belong the family of Comte Hippolyte Maurès de Malartic, was known under the name of Domaine de la Gravière until 1850, when it changed name to take on its current name of Château Malartic-Lagravière. The Bonnies and their team are doing everything to enable this premium terroir to express itself in all its magnificence: intra-plot management of the vineyard, High Environmental Value certification and the whole winemaking process is gravity-fed. They develop complex, balanced, elegant wines, so tailored they can be considered ‘haute-couture’.

Château Malartic-Lagravière is one of the only six classified growths both for its red and white. Its wines are well known all over the world amongst the very best wines in the Pessac-Léognan appellation.

Recognized for its superior reds as well as whites, Pessac-Léognan on the Left Bank claims classified growths for both—making it quite unique in comparison to its neighboring Médoc properties.

Pessac’s Chateau Haut-Brion, the only first growth located outside of the Médoc, is said to have been the first to conceptualize fine red wine in Bordeaux back in the late 1600s. The estate, along with its high-esteemed neighbors, La Mission Haut-Brion, Les Carmes Haut-Brion, Pique-Caillou and Chateau Pape-Clément are today all but enveloped by the city of Bordeaux. The rest of the vineyards of Pessac-Léognan are in clearings of heavily forested area or abutting dense suburbs.

Arid sand and gravel on top of clay and limestone make the area unique and conducive to growing Sémillon and Sauvignon blanc as well as the grapes in the usual Left Bank red recipe: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and miniscule percentages of Petit Verdot and Malbec.

The best reds will show great force and finesse with inky blue and black fruit, mushroom, forest, tobacco, iodine and a smooth and intriguing texture.

Its best whites show complexity, longevity and no lack of exotic twists on citrus, tropical and stone fruit with pronounced floral and spice characteristics.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
