    A white wine from Pessac-Leognan with a pure finish

    Chateau Lespault-Martillac blanc is produced in the Pessac-Leognan appellation. The one hectare vineyard has vines, that are on average 30 years old, planted on a clay-gravel soil. Aging occurs in barrels on lees (25% new barrels), for 9 months. 2016 is a blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon.

    The climatic conditions for this vintage were historic. From January 1st to June 20th, the vineyard's experienced heavy rainfall. The warm spell from June 4th - 11th allowed for flowering to begin. From July 1st onward, summer temperatures settled in with high heat and droughts. The droughts were powerful enough to slow the grapes' maturation process. September 13th brought rain that saved the grapes and finalized maturation.

    Chateau Lespault-Martillac blanc 2016 has a light yellow color with brilliant pale green reflections. The nose is fresh presenting explosive aromas of juicy ripe citrus and exotic fruits. In the mouth, it is ample and refinedPears and nectarines are wonderfully married with minerality. The wine is well-balanced, marrying it smoothness, sweetness and minerality

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The Lespault-Martillac 2016 Blanc is blended of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon. The nose gives up notions of lime leaves, mandarin peel and fresh pears plus hints of paraffin wax and wet slate. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers oodles of freshness and plenty of pear-laced flavor, finishing on a lingering chalky note.
