Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 90 (Apr. 2019)

The 2006 Malartic-Lagravière has a delineated bouquet of mainly blackberry and blueberry, almost mimicking Margaux with charming violet aromas. The aromatics are very seductive but as I have observed on other bottles, the palate does not quite match up: rigid and obdurate with graphite towards the finish that seems to have never quite shaken the hardness it was born with. Maybe one day it will mellow, although by now I would have expected that to happen already. Tasted at the vertical tasting at Malartic-Lagravière.
