Chateau Latour-Martillac 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Das Bouquet der Aromen von roten Früchten vermischt sich mit dem schwarzer Johannisbeeren, Rauch und leichten Lakritzedüften. Im Gaumen kommt die fruchtige feste Tanninstruktur besonders gut zum Vorschein. Der Wein hat einen langen und angenehmen Abgang.

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

Deep, black olive, black fruit, and sweet toasty oak come together on the nose. This is powerfully built, it lacks some energy on the mouth, and the fruit shows a hint of truffly ripeness, but it is smooth, supple and with a powerful, long yet slightly disjointed finish. this really sticks on the palate and is packed with lots of rut and well managed tannins. 90pts

Classified Great Growth in 1953, Château Latour-Martillac is named after its 12th century tower, built by Montesquieu's forfathers.Latour-Martillac caught the eye of Edouard Kressmann when he started his wine shipping business in 1871. A plot of vines called Grattecap, grafted in 1884, still includes the complete range of the white wine varieties that he suggested to the owner at the time. Alfred, Edouard's oldest son, bought the estate in 1929. Taking after him, it was Jean kressmann who had the boldness to design the present label in 1934, characterized by its oblique gold and sand stripes. Tristan and Loïc Kressmann, working with the finest consulting oenologists in Bordeaux, contributed a great deal to redesigning the cellars in 1989.This in order to pursue the improvement, year after year, of this white and red Pessac- Léognan Classified Growth.
