· Wine Advocate – Lisa Perrotti-Brown (93 – 95)
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Latour Martillac bursts from the glass with bold cassis, chocolate-covered cherries and plum preserves scents followed up by smoked meats, violets and aniseed hints plus a waft of Provence herbs. Full-bodied, firm and fine-grained in the mouth, the palate is laden with juicy fruit and savory layers, finishing long and fragrant.
- Wine Spectator – James Molesworth (92-95)
Dark plum and boysenberry compote notes are fleshy in feel, infused with dark tea, ganache and licorice accents. There’s a smoldering hint through the finish. Intriguing.
- James Suckling – (93-94)
The blackberry and wet-earth character with some bark undertones, comes through clearly here. Medium-to full-bodied. Savory finish.
