I loved the 2018 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc, a rich, nicely concentrated, vibrant white that shines on all accounts. Notes of ripe pineapple, flowers, honeysuckle, and subtle grapefruit notes define the bouquet, and it hits the palate with plenty of fruit, medium to full body, bright acidity, and a distinct sense of minerality on the finish. It's going to evolve for a solid 15 years or more.

The Latour Martillac 2018 Blanc rolls out of the glass with upfront notes of spiced pears, lemon curd and lime cordial, plus hints of chalk dust, apple blossoms and coriander seed. The medium-bodied palate retains its sense of freshness and sophistication, even in this warmer vintage. It has delicately played citrus and stone fruit layers with a reassuring chalkiness to the finish. I love how this wine has managed to keep its cool in 2018—nicely done!
