The finesse and generosity of a great red wine from Pessac-Leognan

Situated in the great terroir of the Pessac-Leognan appellation, Chateau Lespault-Martillac is an estate producing charming wines in a consistent style typical of Graves, in the south of the Bordeaux region.

Based around the village of Martillac, Chateau Lespault-Martillac is blessed with a rare terroir of gravel soils, ensuring good natural water drainage. Thanks to the great ambition of Olivier Bernard, the potential of this great land is revealed in the glass.

Although the frost on the nights of April 25 and 29 did not spare the property, a sacrifice of quantity revealed an excellence in quality. The Chateau Lespault-Martillac 2017 is a charming red wine with intense and elegant flavors.

With a blend largely dominated by Merlot (65%) complemented by Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), Chateau Lespault-Martillac 2017 displays the natural characteristics of the Pessac-Leognan appellation through a distinct identity.

The Chateau Lespault-Martillac 2017 reflects the profile of its vintage. Thanks to the beautiful balance of sugar and acidity achieved in berries that have maintained their fresh aromas, the expression of the fruit is revealed to a full extent. The palate reveals the generous texture of Merlot, guided by a solid structure provided by Cabernet Sauvignon. An elegant and charming vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Lespault-Martillac features black cherries, mulberries, earth and cigars on the nose with touches of bay leaves and dried leaves. Medium-bodied, the palate is chewy with a decent fruit core and savory finish.
