Château-Latour-Martillac Pessac Léognan 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
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.
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.
Features a flash of ganache that gives way quickly to gently mulled plum and blackberry reduction flavors, carried by silky tannins and backed by warm tar and smoldering tobacco notes. Just a touch shy on stuffing in the end, but shows nice typicity and balance. Drink now through 2025. 11,667 cases made.
