This is very framed and beautiful. Tannin tension, in a very fine and polished way. It’s full-bodied, yet agile and almost weightless. Long and persistent with great finesse and structure. 89% sauvignon blanc and 11% semillon. - James Suckling

A wine that I have tasted several times over the summer, the last time during a recent vertical at the property. It's at such a lovely moment to drink, showing the rich concentration of the vintage in its juicy white peach, mango and apricot pit notes, combined with the slate texture that keeps things focused. Likely to age a little faster than some other white vintages of Malartic, simply because of the heat of the summer, but this has energy, fragrant white flower notes, and is delicious. From 7ha of white vines, with an average age of 32 years, and at a 32hl/h yield in 2018. Harvest September 10 to 24. Michel Rolland and Eric Boissenot consultants. 55% new oak but of varying sizes, and a mix of Bordeaux and Burgundy barrels. - Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Green and red apple, pear, caramel, brioche and toasted lemon tart. You can feel they achieved good ripeness in the weight and density on the palate - it's not overly rich but can take the oak elements, delivering a more nuanced and sophisticated style this year that's not just fresh and fruity, but also weighty and textured. You get the crushed stone and cooling mint effect on the tongue as well as the peach, plum and green apple crispness. A sharp tang on the finish is thrilling, accentuating the life and vibrancy you get the whole way through. Less overtly acidic than some, it's more in the background while the other more nuanced details sit on top. A lovely wine this year, lots to like with all the necessary elements to age. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter

The 2021 Malartic Lagravière Blanc shows promise, bursting with aromas of lime zest, fresh mint, grapefruit and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and nicely concentrated, it's a taut, intensely flavored wine that concludes with a long, saline finish. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

The 2021 Malartic-Lagravière Blanc races out of the glass with soaring Sauvignon Blanc notes. Bright and sculpted, the 2021 has plenty to offer. Citrus peel, white flowers, sage, mint and crushed rocks lend notable complexity as the 2021 opens with some coaxing. - Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Composed of 89% Sauvignon Blanc and 11% Semillon, the 2021 Malartic Lagraviere blanc slowly unfurls to present notes of lemon curd, green apples, and white peaches, with suggestions of sea spray, paraffin wax, and crushed rocks. The light to medium-bodied palate offers great tension and intensity, with a lively line and long, stone-fruit and lemony finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
