Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Latour Martillac bursts from the glass with bold cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and plum preserves scents followed up by smoked meats, violets and aniseed hints plus a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied, firm and fine-grained in the mouth, the palate is laden with juicy fruit and savory layers, finishing long and fragrant. (LPB)
Dark plum and boysenberry compote notes are fleshy in feel, infused with dark tea, ganache and licorice accents. There's a smoldering hint through the finish. Intriguing. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now. (JM, Web Only-2019)
This takes its time to open, eventually revealing blackberry and black cherry fruits, layered with liquorice and chocolate, followed by some touches of bitterness on the finish. Harvested 17 September to 10 October, yielding 37hl/ha. (JA)
The blackberry and wet-earth character with some bark undertones, comes through clearly here. Medium-to full-bodied. Savory finish.
Firm and spicy, this wine has a dense structure that will lend to good development. It shows a concentrated black-fruit flavor and intense acidity. Expect this wine to have some good medium-term aging. (RV)
The 2018 Latour-Martillac is powerful, dense and explosive, with tremendous richness and energy that drive through to the palate staining finish. Abnormally low yields produced an unusually sumptuous, rich Latour-Martillac. Black cherry, chocolate, spice, gravel and incense build as this arrestingly beautiful wine shows off its racy, curvy personality. The blend is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot and 8% Petit Verdot. Tasted three times. (AG)
Black core. Lovely fragrance of fresh dark fruit and something like lavender. Dark-fruited but still pretty. Elegant, scented with a complex range of aromas that are dark fruit, crushed rocks, and a hint of something floral. Poised and fresh. 17/20 points. (JH)
