2014 Pessac-Leognan Rouge, Cru Classé Bordeaux.
The 2014 Chateau Latour-Martillac reveals a good, very expressive aromatic density on blueberry, jammed blackberry stewed red plum notes. This Pessac-Leognan is fresh despite the aromatic richness. The palate is quite precise with the attack and is built around soft tannins with lovely grain. The palate evolves in a juicy character. The long finish is delicious. This Pessac-Leognan Rouge Cru Classé is a success.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Latour-Martillac has an attractive bouquet with intense blackberry, briary, warm gravel and balsamic notes that are very well defined and evoke Pessac-Léognan through and through. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. It feels gentle in the mouth, not structured but fleshy and full, fanning out with crushed strawberry, red cherry and white pepper towards the satisfying finish. This is early drinking compared to its peers, yet well crafted. Could it have striven for more? Yes, probably.
