I love all the wines of Bordeaux, yet there is something so unique about Graves and Pessac-Leognan. This blind En Primeur tasting was very exciting for exactly that reason!
Latour-Martillac were excellent hosts, and as I wrote before, the hosting chateaux all scored very well so they must have known early on they had a wine to be proud of.
Though the competition in this region was very tough, I found the 2012 vintage of the red Chateau Latour Martillac had a “juicy style” with luscious black ripe fruit (black plum, mission fig) that lifted acidity, along with some violets and a stone character.
Virtually all the wines of Graves and Pessac-Leognan showed well, and should do very well in the market!
