Châteaux LATOUR MARTILLAC & LANGLET


Loïc and Tristan Kressmann continue in the tradition of their winemaking family, who have owned Château Latour Martillac since 1929. With oenologist Valérie Vialard in charge of the chai, and advice from some of Bordeaux’s top consultant oenologists, the Kressmanns make wines that express the diverse character of the gravelly rise of the Martillac village. The family were first drawn to the estate for the outstanding quality of its whites, which are among the best – and best value – in Bordeaux. Classified as a Grand Cru Classé de Pessac-Léognan since 1953, this estate has not shared as much of the lime light as some of its famous neighbours, but it would be a mistake to underestimate the delicate yet precise power of its classically Pessac-style wine.  

The Kressmanns also make a delightful wine from deeper inside the Graves region, Château Langlet. With a Merlot dominated blend it offers a fruitier, more distinctly south-west France feel than its more restrained Cabernet based counterpart from Latour Martillac, and its limited production of white is a secret gem. In their respective classés, Latour Martillac and Langlet are some of the best value Bordeaux to be had.
