Latour-Martillac, Cru Classé de Graves

Located on an outstanding rise of Pyrenean gravel, this estate caught the eye of Édouard Kressmann, a Bordeaux négociant, as early as 1871. He was particularly impressed with the quality of the white wines.

His elder son, Alfred, finally bought the estate in 1930. He expanded the red wine vineyard and designed with his son, Jean, the label with gold and sandcoloured diagonal stripes that is still used today. In 1937, the wines of Château Latour Martillac were honoured at a solemn Coronation Dinner for George VI of England.

Today, Jean Kressmann’s sons, Tristan and Loïc, assisted by the best consulting oenologists in Bordeaux, perpetuate the family tradition and always give priority to quality rather than quantity.

Thanks to their elegant structure and balance, the red and white wines of Latour-Martillac (both of which are classed) are widely recognized as among the most reliable in Pessac-Léognan. Like all the great wines from this appellation, the red wines of Latour Martillac are balanced and elegant. The white wines are surprisingly delicate, complex, and astonishingly long-lived.
