Fresh caramel and chocolate aromas sit across crushed violets and blueberries. The palate has a very plush and fleshy core of blueberries and blackberries. A seductively fruited wine. Try from 2020.
The 2015 Lespault-Martillac is plump, forward and juicy. Mint, sweet herbs and licorice add further shades of nuance, but ultimately, the 2015 is a wine built on forward fruit. This succulent, open-knit Pessac-Léognan should drink well early. The 2015 is an attractive wine, but it also lacks a bit of depth and continuity, something that is especially apparent on the finish.

Tight tannins, full extraction and very modern. Ripe coffee fruit and grippy tannins; plenty to enjoy. One of the bigger expressions of the vintage.
The 2015 Château Lespault-Martillac is also outstanding, although it doesn’t match the quality of the white. Smoke tobacco, blackcurrants, truffle and plenty of classic Graves earthiness all emerge from this ripe, medium to full-bodied, voluptuously textured red that’s going to drink nicely for 8-10 years.
Composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, the medium garnet-purple colored 2015 Lespault-Martillac has expressive red berry preserves, cherry cordial and potpourri notes with a waft of garrigue and black soil. The medium-bodied palate is taut, muscular and firm with plenty of layers and great length. (LPB)
Ripe and fleshy in feel, with lots of plum and currant paste flavors driving through, inlaid liberally with taut red licorice and singed apple wood notes. Offers a light tarry frame on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2027. (JM)
