WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
The wine is rich with layers of wood aging and ripe tropical fruits. Pineapple and peach dominate, cut with some attractive lime acidity. Full of the fruit of the vintage with a texture of serious intent, the wine is tight, tangy and likely to age well. Drink from 2022.

I have been a longtime fan of Château LaTour-Martillac, one of the best white wines from Pessac-Léognan The 2014 vintage is ultra-rich, yet classic and elegant on the palate. The wine exhibits green apple, chalk, and a charming accent of wood. Its richness calls for Dungeness crab over a bed of arugula. (Tasted: July 6, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Latour-Martillac Blanc builds upon its promise en primeur, offering succinct aromas of citrus fruit, linseed and a touch of jasmine. I appreciate the detail and the focus of this white Pessac. The palate is fresh and vibrant with really lip-smacking salinity on the entry, a wine determined to grab your attention straight from the off. And why not when it is this good? Brimming with tension and vivacity, it fans out gloriously towards the finish. One of the best white wines from this estate in recent years—bravo!

Tangy and fruity with lemon and green-apple aromas and flavors. Medium body, lovely fruit and a bright finish. A little tight now. Give it a year or two to come out.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
There's lots of vibrancy here, with gooseberry, fennel, green and yellow plum and verbena notes that are fused together, zipping through a long, mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2019. 3,000 cases made.

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.
