Formerly called Le Sillage, this second white wine from Château Malartic-Lagravière is a worthy partner to the top wine. It has a finely rich and balanced character, yellow fruits topped with a light citrus touch and spice from new wood. It should be ready to drink this summer, but will certainly benefit from a few more months' aging.
