RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Absolutely stunning wine and a sleeper of the vintage for this particular producer, this wine displays loads of waxy, melony, exotic fruits as well as hints of figs, orange and apricot marmalade and some subtle oak in the background. With very good acidity and a lusty, rich, full-bodied mouthfeel, it should continue to drink well over the next 20+ years.

Wine Enthusiast
Spice and lemon freshness combine into a delicious, bright wine, just a touch of Sauvignon herbaceousness.
Barrel Sample: 91-93 Points

Chateau LaTour-Martillac, France
Video of winery
The estate takes its name from the tower which stands in the main courtyard of the chateau; it is the remnant of a fort built in the 12th century by the ancestors of Montesquieu. In 1871, the estate attracted the attention of Edouard Kressmann who had just founded his wine merchant business in Bordeaux. He was seduced by the quality of the white wines grown on a remarkable gravelly hilltop with marked relief and outstanding exposure.

Alfred Kressmann, eldest son of Edouard, acquired the property in 1930. He changed the name to avoid confusion with its illustrious namesake in the Medoc and therefore Chateau Latour became Chateau LaTour-Martillac. There then followed a long period of reconstruction. The vineyard consists of a dozen hectares of which the majority was planted in white wine. Without touching the oldest plots, Alfred Kressmann added Cabernet Sauvignon to the merlot already in place. Interrupted by the war, the reconstruction was continued after by Jean Kressmann, who succeeded his father in 1954. Jean finally achieved the family dream to acquire the gravel slope, which separates the property from the village. Thus the vineyard was gradually extended to nearly 30 hectares.

Today, the 6 children of Jean Kressmann own the domain and continue on the family tradition. Tristan and Loïc, the two younger sons, manage the estate with the assistance of the best wine consultants in Bordeaux. With each following vintage they produce the best from this authentic Graves soil. Since the 1980’s, they have increased the area planted in Sauvignon Blanc to compliment perfectly with the Semillon, the historical grape variety of the property. For the red varieties, the tradition of blending Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot is now topped up with the excellent Petit Verdot variety, which is planted in one of the best gravel plots of the plateau of Martillac.
