Due to a mild and rainy winter, the growth cycle was approximately two weeks ahead of schedule in early 2014. Budburst and flowering has also started earlier than in previous years. In general, the spring and summer of this past year experienced the same conditions as the winter, with wet and mild weather. An unexpected and exceptional Indian summer arrived in September (it was the warmest September since 1961), which allowed the fruit to reach optimum maturity in Pessac-Léognan.

Background

Located on an exceptional terroir, Chateau Malartic-Lagravière is one of the few Bordeaux estates to be classified in the 1953 Graves classification for both their white and red wine. The estate is situated on a high terrace that has been deeply etched by the Eau Blanche stream and its tributaries. The soil is composed of 8 metre deep deposits of gravel dating back to the Quaternary period. The evocative name of ‘Lagravière’ underlines the great quality manifest in the soils of this vineyard, reputed for its location on the finest gravel hillock in Léognan.
