The complexity and structure of a Graves Classified Growth

A Classified Growth of Graves ideally located on the plateau of Martillac, Chateau Latour-Martillac is one of the emblematic properties of Graves with wines that display a constant style based on elegance, density and precision.

Despite a 2017 vintage of challenges, the Chateau Latour-Martillac 2017 confirms its position as a safe bet for the Pessac-Leognan appellation, located in the south of the Bordeaux region.

The 2017 vintage will be remembered for the frost that hit the Chateau Latour-Martillac vineyard. Extreme care taken in the vineyard through the excellent work of the Chateau's technical teams made it possible to extract the best of the 2017 vintage due to the considerable efforts that were taken to identify first and second generation vines. The preciousness of this vintage does not stop from emphasizing the quality of the berries, which display a lovely fruit acidity, freshness and aromatic intensity.

With a blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (63%) complemented by Merlot (30%) and Petit Verdot (7%), the Chateau Latour-Martillac 2017 reveals the typicality of each grape variety from the great terroirs that gave birth to them.

At tasting, the nose reveals elegant Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of black fruit with intense blackcurrant and black cherry notes. The palate offers a dense and creamy texture that is vibrant and lively due to a fruity attack followed by a silky tannic structure. The aging is done in 40% new barrels, and is subtly integrated, so the pureness of the fruit is preserved. A lovely Classified Growth of Graves with a precise style and a sure bet.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Latour Martillac is deep garnet-purple in color and has a nose of warm blackberries, black plum preserves and stewed tea with hints of dusty soil, sautéed herbs and tobacco. The medium-bodied palate is soft and lively with an earthy finish.
