Tasting Notes

The 2015 Tour-Martillac was impressive from barrel and that is translated into bottle. It has a much more attractive bouquet than the 2015 Olivier with crushed strawberry, briary and warm gravel aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a fine bead of acidity, fresh and classic in style with an earthy and quite persistent finish. Excellent. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

Score: 92Neal Martin, vinous.com, July 2019

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Latour Martillac has a spicy nose of cinnamon stick, cloves and aniseed with a core of red and black cherries and a waft of fragrant earth. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of juicy fruit and a firm frame of fine-grained tannins with bags of freshness lifting the finish. 2019 - 2040

Score: 93Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (Interim Mi), February 2018

The 2015 Latour-Martillac is a powerful, muscular wine. Beams of tannin give the 2015 its potent, brooding personality. Savory herbs, new leather, wild cherry, smoke and kirsch get an extra kick of intensity from bright acids and pointed yet well-integrated tannins. Today, the 2015 is a bit reticent and tightly wound, but that should be less of an issue with more time in bottle. 2023 - 2040

Score: 94Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, February 2018

Very dark crimson. So big it hasn’t that much aroma! Smooth tannins and rather attractive inky savour. Good tension. 2025 - 2040

Score: 17Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, April 2016

Solid tannins mark this still very young wine. At the same time, the fruit is rich and well proportioned. Black currants dominate the fruity spectrum, giving the wine richness as well as great potential. Drink from 2025.
