Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, April 2014
An authoritative, rich, concentrated effort, the inky/purple-colored 2011 Latour-Martillac possesses graphite and black currant aromas as well as surprisingly full, powerful flavors that transcend the vintage character... An authoritative, rich, concentrated effort, the inky/purple-colored 2011 Latour-Martillac possesses graphite and black currant aromas as well as surprisingly full, powerful flavors that transcend the vintage character. This wine needs to be forgotten for 3-4 years, and drunk over the following two decades. This is clearly an overachiever in 2011. 91+ - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

The merlot was harvested on September 8th and 9th the petite verdot on September 20th and the cabernet from September 21-28. Aged for 18 months in 30% new oak. Latour-Martillac occupies 45 hectares of an elevated rise of gravelly soil. An inky bright red this one of the darkest Pessacs of the vintage. Blue fruits abound on the nose leading to flavors of carob and blackberry liqueur. Very ripe and soft on entry this is round and balanced. Finishes with some tannins that should soften as this develops resulting in a pleasant wine. Tasted twice. Enjoy 2018-2024.
