"This is a dense wine with dusty, ripe tannins balancing the concentrated blackberry fruit. It is powerful and solidly constructed, with bright acidity and touches of dark chocolate. Impressive and worth serious aging."

94 Points - James Suckling
"Dense and chewy young wine with stone, blackberry and blueberry character. Full and chewy. Shows potential. Another 2015?"

94 Points - The Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Latour-Martillac has an understated nose at first, but it unfurls and becomes quite a seductive Pessac-Léognan with ample blackberry and raspberry fruit, and a subtle hint of black olive. I admire the precision here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, supple tannin overlaid by blackberry and bilberry fruit, sea salt and black pepper. Showing excellent focus and abundant freshness on the finish, this is an assured and sophisticated Latour-Martillac that will give many years of pleasure."

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Layered flavors of boysenberry and raspberry confiture and notes of cassis and melted red licorice pump through, backed by a tarry finish that shows a slightly extracted feel. Maintains pretty good energy throughout."

92 Points - Vinous/Antonio Galloni
"The 2016 Latour-Martillac is a deep, plush wine. The new oak is perhaps pushed to the edge, and yet there is so much fruit intensity, it almost doesn't matter. Readers should expect an unusually opulent wine for the appellation, built on a core of huge, super-ripe fruit. Plum, bittersweet chocolate, licorice and sweet spice punctuate the decadent finish."
