2014 has a deep purple colour. An aromatic nose, offering up fresh red fruits (blackcurrant), notes of balsamic and spices. In the mouth, there is a dense, powerful structure with richness. The tannins are velvety. The finish is resolutely about the fruit with notes of cherries and juicy prunes but also some delicate floral notes (violet) and sweet spices. Good ageing potential for this vintage thanks to the Cabernet Sauvignon. A future grand classic of the property.

Tightly structured, this is a dense wine. Packed with dry tannins, it is starting life as a firm wine. It is equally rich in fruit, a panoply of black plums and red currants. Drink this concentrated wine from 2026.

Ripe and focused, with layers of plum paste, raspberry coulis and macerated bitter cherry driving along, backed by anise and iron notes on the finish. Has a slightly taut edge, so cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2018 through 2026. 10,000 cases made.

The 2014 Latour-Martillac has an attractive bouquet with intense blackberry, briary, warm gravel and balsamic notes that are very well defined and evoke Pessac-Léognan through and through. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. It feels gentle in the mouth, not structured but fleshy and full, fanning out with crushed strawberry, red cherry and white pepper towards the satisfying finish. This is early drinking compared to its peers, yet well crafted. Could it have striven for more? Yes, probably.
