The 2012 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc, a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon, has long been a personal favorite since I first encountered it in barrel. Deeper in colour than the 2013, it has a gorgeous and exuberant bouquet of lemon curd, dried honey and beeswax, well defined and generous. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine bead of acidity. This feels tangy with veins of tangerine and lemongrass towards the finish that is tensile and vibrant. It comes highly recommended. Tasted at the vertical tasting at Malartic-Lagravière.
Anticipated maturity: 2019-2032
