95 Points from Wine Enthusiast

This estate, owned by the Kressmann family, is particularly known for its white. Lightly wood aged, this wine is already delicious, boasting great citrus and white fruits, and sure to be delicious.

 

94 Points from James Suckling

A succulent and punchy style with very assertive, yellow-grapefruit and lemon aromas and a super concentrated, long, focused palate that is very tightly contained for now. The finish holds so long. Age without reservation. Try from 2021.

 

92 Points from Jeb Dunnuck

 I loved the white from this terrific estate. The 2016 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc has impressive notes of caramelized limes, tangerine, and lemon curd in a medium-bodied, pure, elegant package. It shows some salty minerality on the finish, has good acidity, and should keep for 10-15 years.

 

91 Points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The Latour Martillac 2016 Blanc is a little closed on the nose, offering up glimpses of lemon peel, yuzu and fresh grapefruit scents with hints of wet pebbles and lanolin. Medium-bodied, the palate has plenty of exuberant citrus fruit with a lively backbone and minerally finish.

 

Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Latour-Martillac is pale yellow color with sparkling highlights and has complex aromas of both floral (verbena, honeysuckle) and some exotic fruits (passion fruit) and lemon. The palate is beautifully fresh and is balanced by a delicious creaminess. In the mouth, there is elegance with the same complex, fruity aromas of white peach and ripe apricots as well as the floral note of verbena and fresh mint. This wine is remarkably long length on the finish. This is good for drinking over the next 8-10 years and is a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon.
