Unveiling a Bordeaux Gem: Château Latour-Martillac Blanc 2019 Tasting Notes and Food Pairings

The 2019 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc is a stunning white wine from the Pessac-Léognan region of Bordeaux.  This prestigious estate, known for its exceptional red wines, also crafts a remarkable white Bordeaux blend that is sure to tantalise your taste buds.

A Feast for the Senses: Exploring the 2019 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc

Visual Delights: The wine boasts a pale yellow colour with shimmering gold reflections, hinting at the richness to come.

Aromatic Symphony: On the nose, a captivating bouquet unfolds.  Fresh citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit intermingle with ripe stone fruits like white peach and apricot.  These vibrant aromas are complemented by delicate floral hints and subtle nuances of baking bread, almonds, and a touch of spice cake.  The oak influence is beautifully integrated, adding a whisper of vanilla and cream.

The Palate Profile: The first sip of the 2019 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc reveals a medium-bodied wine with an electric intensity.  Tightly woven layers of citrus and fleshy fruits dance on the palate, supported by a refreshing acidity that gives the wine a vibrant energy.  The minerality is subtle yet persistent, reminiscent of clear slate, adding complexity and structure.  The texture is refined and delicate, with a long, lingering finish that echoes the citrus and orchard fruit notes.

Food Pairings to Complement the 2019 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc

The versatility of the 2019 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc allows it to pair beautifully with a wide range of dishes. Here are some suggestions to elevate your dining experience:

  • Seafood: This wine is a perfect companion to fresh seafood.  Pair it with grilled Dover sole, pan-seared scallops, or a delicate lobster bisque.  The wine's acidity will cut through the richness of the seafood, while the fruit notes will complement its natural sweetness.
  • Shellfish:  The minerality and citrus notes in the wine make it a fantastic match for oysters, clams, mussels, and crab.  The wine's richness can also handle dishes with creamy sauces, such as lobster mac and cheese.
  • Poultry:  Roasted chicken or turkey with fresh herbs like thyme and rosemary pairs wonderfully with the 2019 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc.  The wine's acidity will balance the richness of the poultry, while the oak influence will complement the savoury flavours.
  • Salads: Consider this wine for a lighter meal.  It pairs well with a complex salad featuring grilled halloumi cheese, roasted vegetables, and a citrusy vinaigrette.  The wine's acidity will cut through the creaminess of the cheese and enhance the flavours of the vegetables.
  • Goat Cheese:  The creamy texture and tangy flavour of goat cheese find a perfect match in the richness and acidity of the 2019 Château Latour-Martillac Blanc.  Serve the wine with a selection of goat cheeses, crusty bread, and fig jam for a delightful appetiser or light lunch.
