Wine Enthusiast, April 2018
Solid tannins mark this still very young wine. At the same time, the fruit is rich and well proportioned. Black currants dominate the fruity spectrum, giving the wine richness as well as great potential. Drink from 2025.

Beams of tannin give the 2015 its potent, brooding personality. Savory herbs, new leather, wild cherry, smoke and kirsch get an extra kick of intensity from bright acids and pointed yet well-integrated tannins. Today, the 2015 is a bit reticent and tightly wound, but that should be less of an issue with more time in bottle.

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Latour Martillac has a spicy nose of cinnamon stick, cloves and aniseed with a core of red and black cherries and a waft of fragrant earth. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of juicy fruit and a firm frame of fine-grained tannins with bags of freshness lifting the finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Ripe dark cherries and blackberries are framed in slightly nutty, cedary and spicy oak. The palate’s built on polished layered tannin sheets, delivering depth and sturdiness amid fresh flavors of dark cherries and cassis. Best from 2022.

(JL90-92 points) Oak, smoke, fennel and sweet, dark berries on the nose move to a silky, soft, refined, fresh expression with ample ripe fruits and charm.

This is one Pessac-Léognan that seems to have gone into its shell. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite focused and strict, a linear Pessac-Léognan that does not want to give too much away in its youth. One to watch, but perhaps one for the more patient Bordeaux lover.

(17/20) Mid crimson. Smells initially riper than the Ch Haut-Bailly but drier on the palate than the nose suggested. Elegant and refined, powder-fine texture. (JH)
