About Chateau Latour-Martillac
Nestled within the idyllic landscape of the French Bordeaux region, the Château Latour-Martillac Winery boasts a rich historical past alongside an esteemed legacy of winemaking. Named after the tower gracing the courtyard of this majestic property, the 'Martillac' signifier pays homage to the place's vibrant monastic history during the Middle Ages.
The Kressmann family, key players in the Bordeaux vineyard scene since 1871, became the owners of Château Latour-Martillac in 1929. Under their careful stewardship, the vineyard has flourished, delivering consistently excellent wines that embody the earthy richness of their terroir.
Sprawling across around 45 hectares, the vineyard's primarily gravel soil generously furnishes the ideal growing conditions for the classic Bordeaux blends of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The wine embodies a delightful balance of power, elegance and richness, which has gained the Château Latour-Martillac a loyal international following.
Not to be outdone by their illustrious reds, the winery also produces superb white wines, the first of which dates back to 1928. These white wines, comprised of the Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Muscadelle varietals, are known for their alluring complexity and exquisite balance.
Over time, the viticultural and winemaking techniques at Château Latour-Martillac have been meticulously honed, creating a harmonious marriage of traditional wisdom and modern innovation. Here, manual harvests are undertaken with scrupulous attention to detail, ensuring only the finest grapes contribute to their noted wines.
