Château Latour-Martillac

It's impossible to talk about Pessac-Léognan's most charming great wines without mentioning Château Latour-Martillac. The Château owes its name to the tower that stands in its courtyard of honor, a vestige of a fortress built in Martillac in the 12th century by the ancestors of philosopher and winemaker Montesquieu.

Le Domaine was acquired in 1871 by Edouard Kressmann, a Bordeaux wine merchant.

Grand Cru Classé in red and white in the 1953 Graves classification, today it's brothers Tristan and Loïc Kressmann who are at the helm, continuing the family tradition of always prioritizing quality over yield on this authentic terroir.

The Château Latour-Martillac vineyard covers 55 hectares of exceptional Pyrenean gravel hillside.

- The red grape varieties are 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. The grand vin is aged for 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 40% of which are new. Lagrave-Martillac is the Second red wine.

 - The white grape varieties are 60% Sauvignon blanc and 40% Sémillon. The grand vin blanc is aged for 15 months in French oak barrels, 25% of which are new. Lagrave-Martillac is the Second white wine.

The wines of Château Latour-Martillac are particularly elegant, offering sumptuous structure, great harmony and aromatic intensity in both red and white.

Description Château Latour-Martillac 2019 - Blanc.

This Grand Cru Classé of Graves is based on clay-limestone soils exposed on the eastern slope, guaranteeing optimal exposure of the white grape varieties for 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Sémillon.

The wine was aged 15 months on lees, including 11 months in French oak barrels.

The color is pale and shiny, with light green reflections.

The nose is discreet with notes of citrus fruits such as lemon from Menton or pink grapefruit from Florida, yellow fruits such as peach, pears, plums and hazelnuts, toasted almonds, dried fruits ...

The palate is round, full-bodied, suave, with aromas of very ripe fruit. The finish is fresh, energetic and tense.

The bottles should be kept in the cellar, protected from light and noise, with an optimum humidity of 70%.

It is a wine for laying down, the current peak of which will probably last for a few more years.

Serving temperature: Between 12 ° C and 14 ° C.
