    The richness of a red Grand Vin from Pessac-Leognan

    Following a rainy spring, which threatened frost and hail, Chateau Latour-Martillac recorded some attacks from mildew on certain parcels of its vineyard.

    The beautiful dry and warm summer that followed helped achieve an ideal ripeness among the grapes, with a very promising harvest that began on September 17 for the red varieties.

    The Grand Vin of the property, the Chateau Latour-Martillac red 2018 rewarded all the effort made by the Chateau's technical teams. It has indeed taken all their attention and know-how to get the most out of this harvest. Only the most beautiful fruit was selected, especially in the parcels affected by mildew. The Chateau Latour-Martillac team’s experience and fantastic technical tools allowed for a very rigorous and qualitative selection.

    Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), complemented by Merlot (32%) and Petit Verdot (8%), the Chateau Latour-Martillac red 2018 displays all the distinctive qualities of a great red wine from Pessac-Leognan.

    Product of a great vintage for Bordeaux, the Chateau Latour-Martillac red 2018 presents a beautiful and very intense color in the glass. The nose is very expressive, seducing with notes of ripe black berries (blackcurrant) and cherry flavors, and evolving licorice notes. The bouquet is beautifully complemented with floral notes, reminiscent of peony. On the palate, the wine reveals a juicy texture and powerful tannic structure, while maintaining a perfect balance. The long finish offers beautiful aromatic notes. A hauntingly beautiful 2018 vintage for Chateau Latour-Martillac.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Latour Martillac bursts from the glass with bold cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and plum preserves scents followed up by smoked meats, violets and aniseed hints plus a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied, firm and fine-grained in the mouth, the palate is laden with juicy fruit and savory layers, finishing long and fragrant.
