Professional Reviews For This Wine

Jancis Robinson | Rating: 17.5

Rich, broad and very, very full. Relatively low in acidity and faintly raisiny, but no shortage of botrytis. Big build. Very rich and creamy.

About This Producer

Located in the heart of the Sauternes appellation, this vast estate covers nearly 200 hectares of land. Built in the beginning of the 17th century, today the chateau is a listed as a historical monument,

The vineyards are comprised of 27 ha of Sauternes AOC land and 23 ha of Graves AOC land which lay in a continuous stretch around the perimeter of the chateau. The land is slightly hilly, with subsoils of silica, sand, and clay-gravel. The Chateau de Malle is classified as a Sauternes Grand Cru Classe, with characteristic aromas of honey, almonds and candied apricot. In Graves, the M. de Malle is a dry white wine matured in new oak barrels.

Wine Varietal: Bordeaux Blend

Six varieties are permitted to be used in a red Bordeaux blend: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot, and, less frequently, Carmenere. Each lends a specific characteristic to the finished blends, most of which are dominated by large percentages of either Cabernet Sauvignon, which brings aromatics and age-ability, or Merlot, which adds softness and body. In the Bordeaux region, Cabernet blends are found on the Left Bank and Merlot on the Right.
