Vivid, expressive, juicy and concentrated, the 2011 Malartic Lagraviere comes from good-sized estate of 131 acres, of which 17 are dedicated to their excellent white wine. Made from a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple color along with a supple, medium to full-bodied texture with no hard edges, an opulence and exuberance that provide lots of seductiveness, and tell-tale notes of burning embers, charcoal, kirsch liqueur and black currant fruit. Drink this impressive 2011 over the next two decades.

91 pts Wine Spectator

Lively, with solid cut to the damson plum, black cherry and red currant fruit. Offers graphite and sweet spice notes, leading to a long, racy finish. Best from 2015 through 2024.

90 pts Vinous

Fresh and fruity with a currant and raspberry character. Medium to full body, with polished medium tannins and a medium finish. Bright and delicious already.
