Château-Latour-Martillac Pessac Léognan 2014


SKU 4918501216


2014 has a deep purple colour. An aromatic nose, offering up fresh red fruits (blackcurrant), notes of balsamic and spices. In the mouth, there is a dense, powerful structure with richness. The tannins are velvety. The finish is resolutely about the fruit with notes of cherries and juicy prunes but also some delicate floral notes (violet) and sweet spices. Good ageing potential for this vintage thanks to the Cabernet Sauvignon. A future grand classic of the property.

Wine EnthusiastTightly structured, this is a dense wine. Packed with dry tannins, it is starting life as a firm wine. It is equally rich in fruit, a panoply of black plums and red currants. Drink this concentrated wine from 2026.

Wine SpectatorRipe and focused, with layers of plum paste, raspberry coulis and macerated bitter cherry driving along, backed by anise and iron notes on the finish. Has a slightly taut edge, so cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2018 through 2026. 10,000 cases made.
