This large estate of 131 acres has been run brilliantly by a Belgian family, the Bonnies since their acquisition a number of years ago. The quality of the white and red have soared to exceptional heights, and this is certainly still one of the more realistically priced wines of Pessac-Leognan and classified crus. The 2012 is a beauty, with a dense ruby/purple color, a fabulously plush, opulent texture and medium to full-bodied flavors of cassis, spicy earth and blueberry. Quite rich, yet light on its feet, this is an absolutely textbook Pessac-Leognan, with wonderfully velvety tannins. Drink it now, or drink it in 25 years. This is a brilliant wine. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Big, ripe and juicy, this wears its rich black fruits right up front. A strong and firmly tannic structure serves as a background to the fruit. The wine is rich, complex and full of potential. Spice, ginger and nutmeg come through at the end along with the fruit. Drink from 2022. — Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast

The 2012 Malartic-Lagraviere is fabulous. Dark, savory and totally alluring, the 2012 is super-expressive at this stage. Chalk, gravel, smoke, cured meats, tobacco and wild herbs flesh out in a deep, substantial wine that should drink well for the next two decades-plus. With time in the glass, the 2012 turns darker, rich and more layered. Readers wont want to miss this delicious Pessac L'ognan from Malartic-Lagravi¬re. The 2012 is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Michel Rolland is the consultant. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

The lightest hint of tobacco suggests this is moving into the next phase after seven years in bottle. Open and welcoming, it starts well with lovely black fruits through the attack, just receding a little on the finish. It's very well made, with balance, poise and a gourmet twist: the signature that the Malartic team has refined over the past decade. 2% Petit Verdot completes the blend. - Jane Anson, Decanter

Solid, with dense layers of fig sauce, plum cake and blackberry confiture, laced with graphite and warm tar details. The long finish ripples with spice hints and black fruit, leaving a mouthwatering feel despite the heft. Best from 2017 through 2022. 8,330 cases made. James Molesworth, Wine Specator

This shows lots of precision and focus with blueberry, mineral and dried fruit character. Full body, fine tannins and a silky finish. Refined and composed. Better in 2019. James Suckling
