Grand Cru Classe de Graves
Château LaTour-Martillac is one of only six properties classified for both red and white wines in the Graves region.
La Tour refers to the tower which stands in the main courtyard of the chateau; it is the remnant of a fort built in the 12th century by the ancestors of Montesquieu. Martillac is the town nearby. The estate was known as Chateau La Tour prior to 1930s when it was renamed to Chateau Latour-Martillac to avoid mixing up with the famous Medoc winery.
Alfred Kressmann acquired the property in 1930. His grandchildren Tristan and Loic are in charge of the estate today.
Guided tours and tastings generally by appointment. However, there is an option of a short drop-in tour and tastings where there is availability.
Some guided tours include pairing with French cheeses, chocolates and caviar.
