“This is a great Pessac-Léognan from this château, one of the best in recent years… Robert Parker”


95 points Wine Enthusiast
Solid tannins mark this still very young wine. At the same time, the fruit is rich and well-proportioned. Black currants dominate the fruity spectrum, giving the wine richness as well as great potential.
 94 points Vinous
The 2015 Latour-Martillac is a powerful, muscular wine. Beams of tannin give the 2015 its potent, brooding personality. Savory herbs, new leather, wild cherry, smoke and kirsch get an extra kick of intensity from bright acids and pointed yet well-integrated tannins. Today, the 2015 is a bit reticent and tightly wound, but that should be less of an issue with more time in bottle.
93 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Latour Martillac has a spicy nose of cinnamon stick, cloves and aniseed with a core of red and black cherries and a waft of fragrant earth. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of juicy fruit and a firm frame of fine-grained tannins with bags of freshness lifting the finish. Early November delivery.
