Château Latour-Martillac 2011 had a very deep colour. It had a wonderful aroma of cherry and red fruit. Toffee and coffee flavours.
I enjoyed it without pairing.
I enjoyed it with a good friend.
The wine is purchased at Uvinum, right ?
A red Pessac-Léognan quite recommendable.

Chateau Latour Martillac 2011

Cru Classé de Graves in 1953, the Château Latour-Martillac takes its name from the tower adorning its courtyard, the remains of a fort built in Martillac in the twelfth century by the ancestors of the famous philosopher Montesquieu winemaker. Located on an exceptional rump Pyrenean gravel, this area attracted the attention of Edward Kressmann, merchant in Bordeaux since 1871, especially for the quality of its white wines. His eldest son, Alfred, bought the estate in 1930, and developed the red vineyard, and with his son, John, designed the current label, striped gold and sand, which adorns the bottles since 1934. Today, Tristan and Loïc Kressmann, the last two Kressmann son of John, aided by the best consultants winemakers of Bordeaux, continuing the family tradition to get the essence of this authentic serious terroir. By their elegant structure and harmony, red wines from Latour-Martillac and white, also classified, are recognized as safe bets Pessac-Léognan appellation.

Château Latour-Martillac Pessac-Léognan 2011

The 2011 vintage is an elegant wine with a delightful nose with notes of black fruit and coffee. The palate is expressive, fresh and tight. Its tannins are fond and catchy. This is a wine that is concentrated, but without being aggressive.

A Château Latour Martillac that was served as dessert of a good meal. I took the Château Latour Martillac with my couple in a romantic plan.
Typical opacity of a Château Latour Martillac. Smelled soft, like cinnamon and vanilla . A very well balanced red.

Opaque red. The 2015 smells like violets. On the palate reminiscent of leather, slightly burned vanilla.
