60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon
The 2016 Latour-Martillac is pale yellow color with sparkling highlights and has complex aromas of both floral (verbena, honeysuckle) and some exotic fruits (passion fruit) and lemon. The palate is beautifully fresh and is balanced by a delicious creaminess. In the mouth, there is elegance with the same complex, fruity aromas of white peach and ripe apricots as well as the floral note of verbena and fresh mint. This wine is remarkably long length on the finish. This is good for drinking over the next 8-10 years and is a blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon.
The 2016 Latour-Martillac Blanc has a detailed bouquet of white flowers and white peach scents, quite graceful and focused, plus hints of elderflower loitering in the background. The palate is well balanced with quite a sappy opening, very good salinity and an intense, slightly waxy-textured finish that demonstrates fine persistence. This is a superb dry white Bordeaux; this comes highly recommended for all dry white Bordeaux lovers. (8/13/2020)
I loved the white from this terrific estate. The 2016 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc has impressive notes of caramelized limes, tangerine, and lemon curd in a medium-bodied, pure, elegant package. It shows some salty minerality on the finish, has good acidity, and should keep for 10-15 years. (3/1/19)
The Latour Martillac 2016 Blanc is a little closed on the nose, offering up glimpses of lemon peel, yuzu and fresh grapefruit scents with hints of wet pebbles and lanolin. Medium-bodied, the palate has plenty of exuberant citrus fruit with a lively backbone and minerally finish. Drink date 2019 – 2029. (1st December 2018)
