After careful handpicking of the grapes, the bunches are gathered in small crates so as to avoid being crushed. Wines at Château Latour-Martillac are made in such a way as to reduce oxidation to a minimum, which is always harmful for their freshness and balance.Click here to see the White wine cellar The " red " vathouse has special equipment and manual sorting table which enables the harvest that has just been hand-picked under strict supervision, to be de-stalked, crushed and put into vats in record time. The produce of our old vines and that of the younger ones which is used to make our second wine - Lagrave-Martillac Red - ferments in stainless steel vats fitted with electronic temperature control. Our red wines are aged for 18 or 20 months in oak barrels, half of which are renewed every year. Bottling of every vinetage follows fining with egg whites and blending of the wines selected from the different parts of the vineyard, only the best of which go into the first wine, Château Latour-Martillac. For the white wine, pickers go through the vines several times selecting just those grapes that are ready and putting them in wooden fruits trays or flat boxes so as not to damage them. The harvest is then pressed traditionally as the press slowly rotates. The must is filtered cold and the clear juice alone is fermented in oak barrels, that are also renewed by half everey year. This way the natural aromas of the grapes are kept intact. Their complexity comes largely from the old grape varieties used by our grandfathers, magnified by the great age. The young vines are harvested in the same way to make a new Lagrave-Martillac White. The white wines are kept on their lees for over a year, then bottled in dark glass to enable them to develop as dry wines for decades. Read less

Toasty, roast herb, leather, hint of barnyard, dried grasses and wildflowers, a bit of chalk – highish acid but with covering fruit, a bit chunky, very black currant, soft tannin, nice mouthfeel and mid-palate weight, crisp tannin on the finish with good length (89-90)
