1996 Pessac-Leognan Cru Classe

The 1996 Chateau Latour-Martillac displays a tile-tinted, dark hue. This vintage from the Pessac-Leognan appellation reveals a mix of spices, vanilla, and cocoa on the nose. Fleshy texture on the palate complements delicate yet firm tannins: a distinctive mark of high quality Cabernets Sauvignons. This superb vintage pairs well with delicate, tender meats such as: mushroom veal breast with red wine sauce.

Parker : 83 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
La Tour-Martillac's 1996 is a medium-bodied, straightforward wine with good spice, moderate fruit, and a simple personality. There is some tannin, but the wine is light. Anticipated maturity: 2002-2008.
