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 2016.

La robe has a deep purple color. On the nose, the wine boasts a seductive, complex aromatic bouquet.  We detect notes of ripe red fruit (strawberry, raspberry) combined with hints of cloves, licorice and vanilla. The palate is powerful and full-bodied, with firm, well-integrated tannins. The structure is supported by well-balanced acidity that carries us through to the savory, aromatic finish. A superb wine that still requires a little cellaring to fully blossom.
