4/5

The 2013 vintage offers a pretty generous and fresh nose, slightly marked by the sauvignon which nevertheless falls to 70% in the assembly. Lots of fruit and freshness.

4/5

It has aromas of white flowers. Château Latour Martillac Blanc is a full bodied wine with a viscous mouthfeel.
In my personal opinion, it perhaps was a bit dear.
