Robert Parker - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

Ch. Latour-Martillac, Pessac-Léognon, 2011 - Parker: 91+ "An authoritative, rich, and concentrated effort, the inky/purple-colored 2011 Latour-Martillac possesses graphite and black currant aromas as well as surprisingly full, powerful flavors that transcend the vintage character. This wine needs to be forgotten for 3-4 years, and drunk over the following two decades. This is clearly an overachiever in 2011. This estate continues to produce better and better wines. Their 2011 is one of the strongest efforts from the Pessac-Léognan appellation."

Product Description:

Chateau Latour Martillac is one of the most recognizable chateaux in Pessac Leognan. This is because of the famous tower that rests in the front of the chateau. In fact, the tower is where the property found the first part of its name. While the property was first developed in the 12th century, the tower is the only section from the original, small, fortified castle. The 45 hectare Pessac Leognan vineyard of LaTour Martillac has a terroir of gravel based soils. 35 hectares are planted to varieties used in the production of red wine. For the red wines, the vineyards are planted to 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. On average, the vines are about 35 years of age. The vineyard is planted to a vine density that ranges from 7,200 vines per hectare to 8,500 vines per hectare.
