Winemaker’s Notes
The 2016 vintage has a lovely deep purple color. A complex and elegant nose with ripe black fruit aromas (cassis liquor and black cherry), with delicate, spicy and floral notes. The palate is full, fleshy and dense. The tannins are both powerful and rounded, with sweet hints of cherry liqueur and liquorice. Good length on the finish with an incredible freshness.

Lagrave Martillac is the second wine from Château Latour-Martillac, a Grand Cru Classé of Graves. The vineyard is located in the heart of an exceptional terroir, duly recognised in 1987 by the creation of the Pessac-Léognan appellation. The red Lagrave-Martillac was created in 1986. The wine is crafted from the young vines of Château Latour-Martillac and benefits from the same vinification and ageing methods as the premium wines, under the watchful supervision of Tristan and Loïc Kressmann, managers of the estate.This wine offers all the style of the premium wines of the vineyard.

    I love the ripe red and black-fruit nose, where hints of graphite and vanilla add complexity. An elegant, mid-weight wine with nice freshness, as well as good concentration and a long, clean and moderately dry finish that promises well for the future. A blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Better from 2020. (2/4/2019)

    “The 2016 Latour Martillac is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with warm plums, cherry and redcurrant jelly on the nose with touches of bay leaves, iron ore and black soil. Medium-bodied with a well-sustained mid-palate of muscular fruit, it has a firm backbone of fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing very long.”

    The 2016 Château Latour-Martillac is also terrific and has a structured, medium-bodied, firm style that’s going to benefit from cellaring. Blackberries, graphite, new leather, and a kiss of tobacco all emerge from this nicely textured, pure, layered Pessac.

    Solid, with a juicy yet restrained core of dark currant and blackberry compote flavors that should unwind nicely with modest cellaring thanks to nicely embedded brambly grip and anise and tar notes that run through the gutsy finish. Best from 2021 through 2026.
