James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, August 2012
Gorgeous nose of warm stones and dark fruits. Full body with a solid core of fruit and chewy tannins, and a long and intense finish. Best ever. Best after 2016.

The best ever wine from this estate (even better than their sensational 2005), this full-bodied wine offers notes of blueberry, black currant, asphalt and burning charcoal embers in a deep, layered and multi-dimensional style. It is impressively pure and well-built, with far greater concentration and length than I ever remember this wine having in the past. Forget it for 5 years and drink it over the following three decades.

This has a very solid core of black Mission fig, blackberry preserves and freshly roasted espresso flavors, woven nicely with hints of alder wood, tar and pastis. The long finish shows polish, with nice grip in reserve... This has a very solid core of black Mission fig, blackberry preserves and freshly roasted espresso flavors, woven nicely with hints of alder wood, tar and pastis. The long finish shows polish, with nice grip in reserve. Best from 2013 through 2022. -JM

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, September 2012
Ripe, perfumed wine that has an immediately appealing richness. It feels opaque in its density, layering tannins upon fruit with a luxurious, velvet feel. The result is a wine that is almost drinkable now, but which will age.

Located on a 45 hectare outpost of Pyrenean gravel, the 2009 Latour-Martillac is composed of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 35% merlot, and 5% petit verdot. A dark blood red, this is a very ripe Pessac, even for the vintage. A bit grapey on the nose, it features flavors of chocolate and rich, concentrated cool blue fruits on the palate. Very taut, but I think this will drink better on the younger side.
