La Réserve de Malartic 2019
Pessac Léognan Rouge€ 19.06/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – 89-91/100
The 2019 La Réserve de Malartic was picked from 17 September to 11 October and sees around 25% new oak for 15 months. This has a surprisingly intense and expressive bouquet with exuberant blueberry and black cherries bursting from the glass. The palate is fleshy and with a satin-like texture, layers of creamy red fruit with just a slight piquancy on the finish. This is a well crafted Deuxième Vin packed full of flavour.
The Wine Advocate – 88-90/100
The 2019 La Réserve de Malartic is a blend of 82.6% Merlot, 12.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5.1% Petit Verdot, harvested from the 17th of September to the 11th of October. The wine is aging in French oak barrels, 25% new, for approximately 15 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with invigorating notes of black raspberries, kirsch and wild blueberries with hints of hoisin sauce, potpourri and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating juicy black and blue fruits with a pleasant chewiness to the texture and just enough freshness, finishing savory.
