The color is very dark, deep, purple. The nose is intense with notes of blackcurrant, black cherry and fresh fruit followed by a touch of licorice and spices. The palate is greedy, powerful, juicy and fleshy, with coated and velvety tannins. The finish is fresh, fruity and persistent.

Grape Composition: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot

Deep purple-black colored, the 2020 Latour Martillac needs a little swirling to release scents of wild blueberries, fresh black-currants and mulberries with hints of chocolate box, aniseed and mossy tree bark with a touch of charcoal. The medium-bodied palate is soft, juicy and refreshing, offering a savory finish.

The 2020 Latour-Martillac offers an enticing bouquet of black fruit infused with black olive, background citric scents lending a bit of zest. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, well-integrated oak and impressive depth. This is a very assured and confident Latour-Martillac that continues their strong run of form. Perhaps one of the dark horses of the appellation in 2020, this should be on your primeur shopping list.

This really builds on the palate with blackberry, blueberry and stone aromas and flavors. Medium to full body. Creamy finish.

The deep inky colored 2020 Château Latour-Martillac is another classic Graves from this vintage with loads to love. Lots of red, blue, and black fruits, notes of flowers, chocolate, and gravelly earth, medium to full-bodied richness, impeccable balance, and silky tannins all make for an outstanding, undeniably impressive 2020 that shines more for its elegance and purity than outright power and richness. It will benefit from 3-5 years of bottle age and cruise for two decades.
