Media Reviews

Neal Martin

The 2017 Latour-Martillac Blanc has a lifted linden, Granny Smith apple and nettle scented bouquet that opens nicely with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, fresh and focused with a satisfying sense of tension. It is a subtle Pessac-Léognan Blanc, unfolding in the glass to reveal light nectarine and stone fruit notes towards the finish. This is a strong performance from Latour-Martillac and it comes recommended. 91-93 points

Jane Anson

A touch of reduction on the first nose clears to reveal a tight and austere wine that gathers steam through the palate and finishes with bright, juicy, mouthfilling stone fruits. 91 points

Julia Harding

A more subtle aroma than on the Larrivet Haut-Brion just tasted. Citrus and stony minerality. Grapefruit-pith tang. Very crisp on the palate, almost eye-watering, but there`s richness too, full-fruited and sweetened/balanced by the oak. Lightly chewy finish. Moderate length. 16 points
