The freshness and the balance of this vintage combine with the brilliance of the fruit and velvety texture, with a ample yet complex tannic structure, reflecting the true signature of Malartic’s terroir. Blend: 82.6% Merlot, 12.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5.1% Petit VerdotThe Barrel Sample for this wine is under 14% ABV. This has tile, stone and dusty-soil character to the dark fruit and plums. It’s full-bodied and extremely refined with beautiful tannins and fruit. Currants and light chocolate at the end. Second wine. Barrel Sample: 93-94 A lovely 2nd wine, soft grilled caramel around the edges of plump black fruits, well judged extraction and great freshness through the palate. No need to wait to enjoy this as the tannins are so carefully integrated, but it still has impact and elegance, and a real reminder of the first wine. Barrel Sample: 92 The 2019 La R serve 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 Deuxi me Vin packed full of flavor. – Neal MartinBarrel Sample: 89-91
