The 2015 Harvest. Uniformity and perfect weather conditions for a huge vintage.The cold, wet winter was followed by a historically warm, dry spring until the end of July. Some
welcome rain contributed to a perfect development of the ripening phase in August. Thus, the white
harvest started early September with superb maturities and healthy grapes. There was a magnificent period of Indian summer weather. A few spells of rain in early September and
mid-October did not harm the grapes' excellent state of health and the steady progression in their degrees of ripeness. Uniformity and perfect health are the vintage's key characteristics. This result is a truly sublime
expression of Malartic's mosaic of terroirs. Each plot has been able to reveal its full personality. The
rich aromatic palette has been enhanced by a soft and tailor-made ageing that reinforced the
expression of a very nice complexity harvest

Domaine de Lagravière, recognized since time immemorial for its excellent terroir, was purchased at the end of the eighteenth century by the family of Count Hippolyte de Maurès de Malartic. Serving the armies of the Kings of France, this Admiral fought against the English on the many seas of the world, showing special bravery in 1756 during the battle of Quebec.The estate was then bought in 1850 by Madame Arnaud Ricard, who added the name Malartic to that of Lagravière as a tribute to the former owners. After land reorganisation and the acquisition of some small plots, the estate took on the form which it was to keep until the 1950s. The Marly family were the last of the Ricard ancestry to run the Château. Of particular note, Jacques Marly was estate manager from 1947 to 1990. Having enjoyed an excellent reputation from the beginning of the nineteenth century, Château Malartic-Lagravière was one of only six properties in Bordeaux to enter the 1953 Graves classification for both its red and white wines. At the end of 1996, the Château entered a new era with the arrival of the Bonnie family.
