    Description

    The freshness and vivaciousness of a dense and savory white Graves Cru Classe

    The estate

    Chateau Latour-Martillac owes its name to a tower standing in the chateau’s main courtyard. This tower is in fact the vestige of a 12th century fort, once used to overlook the road from Bordeaux to Toulouse. Owned by the Kressmann family since 1871, Chateau Latour-Martillac achieved the title of Cru Classe des Graves in both red and white in 1953. Tristan and Loïc Kressmann continue to carry on the family tradition with passion and ambition, developing great red and white Graves wines.

    The vineyard

    The Chateau Latour-Martillac vineyard enjoys an exceptional location in the Pessac-Leognan appellation. The Martillac plateau is composed of a mosaic of gravel dating from the Quaternary, including flint, quartz, lydian and jasper. These soils constitute the terroir of choice for Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. The other main terroir of the property is located closer to the Garonne, where we find clay-limestone and gravelly soils on the surface. This is where the Merlot and the white grape varieties of the property are planted (Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon).

    The vintage

    A year marked by significant climatic contrasts, 2019 was a very technical vintage. After an early bud burst, spring 2019 was cold and rainy. By the end of June, summer set in with scorching temperatures. The rainy days at the end of July helped to avoid excessive water stress. The harvest at Chateau Latour-Martillac started on September 3 with the white grape varieties and on September 19 with the red grape varieties and ended on October 7.

    The aging

    25% in new oak barrels.

    The blend

    Sauvignon blanc (58%), sémillon (42%).

    The tasting

    Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau Latour-Martillac white 2019 emphasizes the freshness and liveliness of Sauvignon Blanc. The aromatic bouquet packs the nose with notes of white fruits, citrus and gourmet exotic fruits. On the palate, the fruit is bright and tasty. The juicy palate then reveals a dense and voluminous structure, brought by the semillon. Elegant notes of apricot and verbena ass a refreshing touch to the finish.
