Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2016 Latour-Martillac offers classic Pessac-Léognan scents on the nose. black fruit, black olive and a touch of sage, plus hints of blue fruit that emerge with time. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit and fine acidity. A little compact toward the finish, but with good persistence. My feeling is that this will close down quite soon after bottling, but there is a great wine here. 93 points

Neal Martin

The 2016 Latour-Martillac has an understated nose at first, but it unfurls and becomes quite a seductive Pessac-Léognan with ample blackberry and raspberry fruit, and a subtle hint of black olive. I admire the precision here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin overlaid by blackberry and bilberry fruit, sea salt and black pepper. Showing excellent focus and abundant freshness on the finish, this is an assured and sophisticated Latour-Martillac that will give many years of pleasure. 92-94 points

Jane Anson

This is a successful wine, firmly extracted, and erring on t plex and savoury, it has refined tannins, layered dark berry fruit, bright acidity and impressive palate length. Drink 2026-35. 94 points

Antonio Galloni

The 2016 Latour-Martillac is a deep, plush wine. The new oak is perhaps pushed to the edge, and yet there is so much fruit intensity, it almost doesn`t matter. Readers should expect an unusually opulent wine for the appellation, built on a core of huge, super-ripe fruit. Plum, bittersweet chocolate, licorice and sweet spice punctuate the decadent finish. 89-92+ points
