Château Latour-Martillac 2015

Bordeaux - Pessac-Leognan - Red Château Latour-Martillac Château Latour-Martillac 2015 1427/15
  • Parker : 92-94
  • J. Robinson : 17
Designated a Classified Graves 1953, Château Latour-Martillac owes its name to the tower in the courtyard, the vestige of a fortress built in the 12th century by the ancestors of the famous winegrower and philosopher, Montesquieu. Located on an outstanding rise of Pyrenean gravel, this estate caught the eye of Édouard Kressmann, a Bordeaux négociant, as early as 1871. He was particularly impressed with the quality of the white wines. His elder son, Alfred, bought the estate in 1930. Alfred expanded the red wine vineyard and, in 1934, designed with his son Jean, the label with gold and sand coloured diagonal stripes that is still used today. Today Jean Kressmann's sons, Tristan and Loïc, assisted by the best consulting oenologists in Bordeaux, perpetuate the family tradition in order to extract the quintessence of the superb Graves terroir. Thanks to their elegant structure and balance, the red and white wines of Latour-Martillac (both of which are classified growths) are widely recognised as among the most reliable in Pessac-Léognan.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 La Tour Martillac is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 6% Petit Verdot matured in 40% new French oak. It has a slightly more high-toned and outgoing bouquet, with dark cherries and blackcurrant aromas, a smidgen of cassis emerging with time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a pleasant saltiness here, very focused with a finish of real pedigree. This is a superb Pessac-Léognan from the estate - one of the best in recent years.
