The 2016 vintage has a lovely deep purple colour. A complex and elegant nose with ripe black fruit aromas (cassis liquor and black cherry), with delicate, spicy and floral notes. The palate is full, fleshy and dense. The tannins are both powerful and rounded, with sweet hints of cherry liqueur and liquorice. Good length on the finish with an incredible freshness.

The 2016 Latour Martillac is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with warm plums, kirsch and redcurrant jelly on the nose with touches of bay leaves, iron ore and black soil. Medium-bodied with a well-sustained mid-palate of muscular fruit, it has a firm backbone of fine-grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing very long.

A structured wine backed by plenty of black-currant fruits, this is initially austere. Its richness needs time to develop and turn into the classically structured wine that this estate does so well. Drink from 2025.

Solid, with a juicy yet restrained core of dark currant and blackberry compote flavors that should unwind nicely with modest cellaring thanks to nicely embedded brambly grip and dried tobacco leaf, anise and tar notes that run through the gutsy finish. Best from 2021 through 2026.
