Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Lovely! As the second label of Château Latour-Martillac, this wine is a sneaky good value Bordeaux. Blended from 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, there are pronounced aromas of cassis, eucalyptus, graphite, and smoke. Tannins are pronounced but softened with decanting, and there is also a plushness on the palate, balanced with some high acidity. One to enjoy now after decanting or could lay it down for 5-8 years at least. Pair with a grilled steak.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
