JS 93
James Suckling
A dense and layered white with cooked-apple, lemon-rind and dried-pineapple character. Medium-bodied, tight and structured. Flavorful finish. Also a fennel and aniseed undertone.
Barrel Sample: 92-93
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Composed of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, this wine was fermented in oak barriques, 35% new. The Lespault-Martillac 2018 Blanc comes galloping out of the glass with bold green guava and warm pineapple scents followed by notions of grapefruit, lemongrass and lime cordial plus a waft of honeysuckle. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers mouth-coating tropical fruits and a satiny texture with great length and freshness.
Barrel Sample: 91-93

This estate has been run by the incredibly talented Olivier Bernard of Domaine de Chevalier since 2009. Their 2018 Château Lespault-Martillac Blanc offers a clean, crisp style to go with impressive notes of honeyed citrus, melon, and white flowers. It’s beautifully balanced, has a straight, focused texture, and a clean finish. A blend of 70% Sauvignon and 30% Sémillon, it’s a terrific white well worth seeking out. Barrel Sample: 91-93.

D 90
Decanter

This is silky and nicely held together, pretty tight in its liquorice and oak flavours, not leaving much room for the dark fruit quality lurking in the background.

Chateau Lespault-Martillac, France
Chateau Lespault-Martillac Winery Image
Chateau Lespault-Martillac is one of the oldest estates in Martillac, and wine has been made here since Roman times. It is located on a magnificent gravelly rise overlooking the commune. The chateau, an 18th century manor house, and the newly-renovated cellars are located in the heart of small vineyard with old Merlot vines producing low yields of high-quality grapes.

Starting with the 2009 vintage, the owners, the Jean-Claude Bolleau family, have entrusted management of this estate to Domaine de Chevalier, a Graves great growth. Olivier Bernard and his team have undertaken to make this wine with an outstanding potential one of the jewels of the Pessac-Leognan appellation. In order to do so, they use the same methods as the finest great growths: ploughing the soil, sustainable viticulture, plot-by-plot vineyard management, hand picking and careful sorting of grapes, their transfer by gravity flow into small 50-80 hectolitre fermentation vats, finely-tuned extraction, malolactic fermentation, ageing in barrel on the lees, etc.
