94pts James Suckling

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

92pts Decanter

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.

91pts Jeb Dunnuck

I was able to taste two reds from this estate. The second wine, the 2019 La Reserve De Malartic is a medium-bodied, elegant, silky wine that's already hard to resist. Plenty of black raspberry and cassis fruits, a touch of gravelly earth and tobacco, medium-bodied richness, and moderate length all make for a charming 2019 that's ideal for drinking while you wait on the grand vin.
Barrel Sample: 88-91

90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 La Réserve de Malartic is a blend of 82.6% Merlot, 12.3% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5.1% Petit Verdot, harvested from the 17th of September to the 11th of October. The wine is aging in French oak barrels, 25% new, for approximately 15 months. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with invigorating notes of black raspberries, kirsch and wild blueberries with hints of hoisin sauce, potpourri and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-coating juicy black and blue fruits with a pleasant chewiness to the texture and just enough freshness, finishing savory.
Barrel Sample: 88-90
