The 2014 Latour-Martillac has an attractive bouquet with intense blackberry, briary, warm gravel and balsamic notes that are very well defined and evoke Pessac-Léognan through and through. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin. It feels gentle in the mouth, not structured but fleshy and full, fanning out with crushed strawberry, red cherry and white pepper towards the satisfying finish. This is early drinking compared to its peers, yet well crafted. Could it have striven for more? Yes, probably.
Ripe 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.
The 2014 Chateau Latour-Marillac offers a beautiful, classic Graves character with its telltale smoked earth, cigar, tobacco, and ripe currant fruits. With none of the rusticity found in the 2015, medium-bodied richness, impressive purity and an elegant, layered, ripe personality, it’s a terrific Pessac to drink anytime over the coming 15-20 years.
