Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

A juicy red with plum, black-truffle and berry aromas. Medium body. Attractive finish. Round and creamy. - James Suckling.
Gorgeous nose, rose tinted strawberries and raspberries. The fruit is a little severe on the palate, you get an initial burst of fresh red berries with juicy acidity but the edges are a little stalky with the minty, robust, slate-edged tannins coming in and overtaking the freshness. The overall texture is impressive, this just lacks a little more density and push of the fruit but you do get the feeling of precision, the integration of tannins and and cool aspect throughout. And the minerality on the tongue is clean and crisp. An impressive effort with lots going on. One I look forward to tasting in bottle. Could easily go up in score. - Georgina Hindle, Decanter.
The 2021 Château Latour-Martillac should be outstanding, and it stays nicely in the medium-bodied, balanced, elegant style of the vintage. Ripe red and black fruits, notes of leather, sandalwood, and earthy tobacco, fine tannins, and rock-solid balance all define this attractive Pessac. - Jeb Dunnuck.
