Chateau Latour-Martillac Blanc 2013
95 Points James Suckling
This wine reveals generous aromas of white fruit and citrus. On the palate it's lively, elegant and balanced with lovely white peach. The complexity and controlled acidity of this 2013 are sure to be a great vintage to age.
Blend: 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon
James Suckling - 95 Points
So much licorice and fennel seed on the nose with lemon and dried pear undertones. Full body, bright acidity and lots of stone, apple skin and citrus undertones. A solid and serious dry white that will deliver pleasure now but will improve for many years ahead.
Wine Enthusiast - 93 Points
This wine is all herbal fruits, with spice from the wood-aging and lively acidity. It has considerable potential, full of its nervy texture, minerality and tight acidity. Wait at least into 2020. Tristan and Loïc Kressmann now run the family estate.

The 2013 LaTour Martillac Blanc has a grassy, lime and gooseberry-scented bouquet, the Sauvignon Blanc in charge and driving the aromatics. The palate is crisp and fresh on the entry with a pleasant saline entry, a touch of bitter lemon and a vibrant, quite sustained finish that just attenuates slightly, though I suspect that will be addressed with bottle age. Bunker this in your cellar for 3 or 4 years before reaching for the waiter's friend.

Stylish, with an alluring brioche edge underscoring the white peach, verbena and straw flavors. Stays racy through the finish, presenting a lingering whiff of toast.
