2020 Latour-Martillac Blanc, Pessac-Léognan (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1545148 93-95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2020 Latour-Martillac Blanc has a more reserved bouquet compared to its peers, but still quite compelling, with crushed rock infusing the dried yellow flowers, white peach and chai tea scents. I could nose this all day. The very well-balanced palate is quite intense, offering a fine bead of acidity and plenty of tension and mineralité toward the saline finish. If I was going to spend my money on one dry white Bordeaux this year, it might well be this. (NM) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Citrus and crisp white apples go with the wine's mineral texture. It is balanced, full of white fruits as well as the beginnings of fine concentration. The wine will age well over the medium term. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

92-93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense yet fresh white with sliced lemon and cooked apple. Green mango, too. Phenolic tension. Full-bodied and layered. Solid phenolics at the end. Inner quote mark (5/2021)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2020 Latour Martillac Blanc has a fragrant nose of lemongrass, spiced pears and lime leaves, plus hints of fresh peaches and shaved almonds. The medium-bodied palate has an impressively racy backbone cutting through the intense citrus and stone fruit flavors, finishing long and zesty. (LPB) Inner quote mark (5/2021)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark 68% Sauvignon blanc, 32% Sémillon. Aged for 14 months in French oak barrels (25% new). Inexpressive on the nose, but in such a way that suggests the wine may have hidden depths. Very salivatory and much drier than some of its peers. Rather fine-boned and with lots of energy and drive. Appetising. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2021)
