Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Lespault Martillac Pessac Leognan Blanc 2016

Rated 93 by James Suckling
Fresh, lemon-jelly bouquet, but it also has some creamy richness which neatly balances the lively acidity on the palate. Long, polished finish with some salty minerality. A blend of 70 per cent sauvignon and 30 per cent semillon. Drink or hold.
Rated 92 by Jeb Dunnuck
Plenty of lemon blossom, white grapefruit, and floral notes emerge from the 2016 Château Lespault Martillac Blanc, which is based largely on Sauvignon yet includes 30% Sémillon. Aged in 35% new French oak, it’s medium-bodied, has good freshness and acidity, top-notch balance, and outstanding length, all making for a delicious Bordeaux Blanc to drink over the coming decade or more.

Winery Chateau Lespault Martillac

Region: Bordeaux

The wineries of Bordeaux in France are widely considered to be amongst the finest on earth, with many of the chateaux found on the Left Bank and in the Médoc region routinely demanding enormous prices and being snapped up by collectors looking to add the best examples of the world's white and red wines to their cellars. Bordeaux's secret to success comes from the fact that the terroir of the region is exceptionally rich in minerals, helped by the clay and gravel soils which typify the area and the Gironde river which runs through it. Normally humid in climate, the nearby Atlantic coast supplies cooling breezes, making Bordeaux a winemaker's dream and resulting in extremely high quality grape varietals. For hundreds of years, the wineries of Bordeaux have been mastering the art of wine blending, and today produce a wide range of wine styles using many of the sixteen grape varietals permitted to grow in the region by French law.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
