Tasting
Colour Beautiful deep red with glints of violet. Nose fine intensity, pleasantly complex, with red fruit, floral, smoky, toasted, and mineral notes.

Palate mellow, smooth attack, well-rounded with good volume. The same aromatic profile develops as the nose, with fruity, toasted, smoky, slightly minerally notes. Plump tannins. La Réserve de Malartic 2012 presents good length and pleasant complexity. A charming, enjoyable wine that offers a good representation of the appellation and the terroir.
