Chateau Malartic Lagraviere 2020 Bordeaux Blanc
Blend: 71.8% Sauvignon Blanc, 28.2% Semillon
Straight-up classic notes of honeyed pineapple, chalky minerality, minty herbs, and spicy nuances emerge from the 2020 Chateau Malartic-Lagraviere Blanc, a deep, richly textured, medium to full-bodied white with nicely integrated acidity, beautiful overall balance, and a great finish. It's one of the finest whites I've tasted from this chateau and is well worth seeking out. I like it today, yet it should have 10-12 years or more of prime drinking as well. Best After 2023.
Aromas of spearmint, fresh thyme, pears, green papaya and white lilies. Full-bodied, with beautiful structure and depth. Gorgeous fruit and intensity. Long and flavorful. So enjoyable now but will improve beautifully with age.
