Outer quote mark A layered and beautiful white with intense aromas of lemon ice, stones and green apples. Full-bodied, focused and rich. Best wine ever from here. Drink now. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Based on a 75/25 split of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, the 2015 Château Lespault-Martillac Blanc is an exotic, clean, classy white from the vintage that has bright acidity giving plenty of lift to notions of lime, tangerine, mint and even a hint of lychee nut. With medium to full-bodied richness, it has impressive concentration, as well as elegance, on the palate, and should keep for a decade. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Blanc from Lespault-Martillac is made up of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon. Fermentation took place in barrels, 35% of which were new, 35% one year old and 30% two years old. The wine aged on its lees for 14 months. It's a little closed on the nose, showing notes of white pepper, freshly squeezed lemons and peach kernels with touches of lime leaves and grapefruit peel. Medium-bodied with wonderful intensity and a racy line, it finishes very long and very pure. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark On the plumper side, with a burst of grapefruit oil followed by honeysuckle, quinine and lemon peel hints. A swath of shortbread carries the finish. Drink now through 2020. (JM, Web Only-2018) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

91 points, Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "The Chateau Lespault-Martillac 2015 Blanc has quite a primal grapefruit and citrus peel nose, a little distant with touches of kiwi fruit and mint developing in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, quite lively in the mouth with a tang of spice toward the finish. It develops nicely in the glass, developing a slight oiliness to the texture with aeration. Recommended."

Made by the team from Domaine de Chevalier, the quality and pedigree of this wine is quite apparent. It is a full bodied white, that is aged on its lees for 14 months, imparting a richness that is also balanced by the fact that it didn't go through malolatic fermentation, preserving its fresh acidity. I would suggest pairing it with any light meat, fish dish made with some creamy sauce. And of course...Lobster!

Lespault Martillac is a Domain de Chevalier property in Pessac Leognan, and the quality associated with it is evident. It has great weight and phenolic texture, with bristling minerals and great balance between tropical and lemon notes, and a long, crisp finish. This is great Bordeaux blanc!
