Château Latour Martillac Blanc 2014

History of the Castle The name of the castle comes from a tower that was erected in the courtyard of the castle in the twelfth century. Originally, it was a fort, whose stones were then used to build the current house. In 1871, Edouard Kressman, merchant, is the domain buyer door, attracted by the quality of its white wine. His son, Alfred, took the lead in 1930 and decided to change the name: indeed, to avoid confusion with his namesake Médoc, Château Latour became Latour-Martillac. He began a restructuring of vineyards by adding Cabernet Sauvignon. In 1953, his efforts will be rewarded as the Castle wine will enter Ranking serious. This is one of the six areas to be classified in red and white. Jean Kressman, son of Alfred, inherited the castle and decided to acquire the gravel plateau that separated the field from the village. Today, the son of John Kressman, Tristan and Loïc Kressman, are owners of the premises. They added the Sauvignon Blanc plots, while continuing to perpetuate a family heritage. Terroir Château The vineyard soil is poor and draining through serious that constitute it. The terrain is so ideal to accommodate the vineyard and in order to keep all its particularity, its quality, the harvest is done manually. It is this fact that Latour-Martillac wine is a wine of reference today. Note tasting of Château Latour-Martillac (Vintage 2014) "The 2014 vintage has a pale yellow color with beautiful reflections glittering. The nose is pure and very expressive, rich white peach, grapefruit, lemon and even fresh pineapple. The palate is well balanced, complex and can appreciate very pleasant notes of almonds and orange zest. The acidity is perfectly controlled. The finish is long and refreshing. A beautiful aging potential for this vintage! "

Chateau Latour-Martillac Pessac Leognac Rouge 2014

A slightly grassy nose here, with aromas of plum and greengage, with a touch of yellow capsicum, certainly a fresh style. Nice fatness on the palate, succulent and rich, slightly soft acidity though. A classic Pessac Leognan.

A white to drink with that special person.
It's yellow, but almost amber. Honey scent. I liked the acidity of 2013.
It's better not to pair it and drink it alone.

The Sémillon goes well with basmati rice. It was a birthday present for my friend.
Good colour. The nose perceives aromas of honey and pollen. Very light and pleasant wine in the mouth.
