Vintage Seeks Home: Bordeaux 2017 In Bottle (Jan 2020)

The 2017 Latour-Martillac needs a little time to fire up its motors on the nose, although it eventually reveals attractive blackberry, wild hedgerow and cedar scents that continue gaining intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a fine, silky texture. Perhaps my only criticism is that it does not dovetail into something more complex on the finish, but it remains a finely crafted Pessac-Léognan Grand Cru.
