Chateau Latour Martillac Blanc - Pessac-Leognan Grand Cru Classe AOC

The Kressmann family's Grand Cru estate, in the heart of Graves: Pessac-Leognan.

The tower, beautifully gracing the main courtyard, gave its name to the estate; it is the only trace left of a small fortified castle built in the 12th century by Montesquieu's forefathers. Edouard Kressmann showed some interest for this growth as early as 1871, when he settled in Bordeaux as a wine merchant.

The oldest part of the vineyard, grafted in 1884, still displays the whole range of the white grape varieties that Edouard loved. Alfred, Edouard's eldest son, bought the estate in 1929. The present label, designed by Alfred's son, Jean with gold and black wide oblique stripes, was adopted in 1934; it was inaugurated on a 1929 bottle served in 1936 for His Majesty George VI's coronation. In 1955 Jean inherits the estate which he had managed since 1940 for his father. Tristan and Loïc, two of his sons, have now taken over. With the advice of some of the best consultants in Bordeaux, they take it to heart to carry on improving the quality of those great wines, classified in red as well as in white.

Tristan and Loïc, his two youngest sons, have now taken over. After a thorough renovation of the chais in 1989, Tristan (overall management) and Loïc (technical management) strive to keep alive a family tradition which will always sacrifice yield for quality. With the advice of some of the best consultants in Bordeaux, they set their hearts on continuously improving the quality of those great wines, classed growth in both colours. The white wines are surprisingly delicate, complex and can be kept for quite a long time, revealing a beautiful evolution. The red wines, like all great Pessac-Leognan wines, are pure harmony, elegance and finesse.
