The 2018 Château Lespault-Martillac is terrific, and despite having gravellier, draining soils, the Graves region turned out plenty of beautiful wines in the vintage. This deeply colored effort offers medium to full-bodied richness and notable elegance to go with classic aromas of crème de cassis, crushed rock, earthy forest floor, and spice. It’s fresh, lively, and again, incredibly elegant. - Jeb Dunnuck

The 2018 Château Lespault-Martillac is terrific, and despite having gravellier, draining soils, the Graves region turned out plenty of beautiful wines in the vintage. This deeply colored effort offers medium to full-bodied richness and notable elegance to go with classic aromas of crème de cassis, crushed rock, earthy forest floor, and spice. It’s fresh, lively, and again, incredibly elegant. It should benefit from 2-5 years of bottle age and keep for 15-20 years

Robert Parker

The 2018 Lespault-Martillac is deep garnet-purple colored with a nose of warm black cherries, red and black plums and fragrant earth with wild sage nuances. The palate is medium to full-bodied and lively with muscular fruit and grainy tannins, finishing with an herbal lift.

The 2018 Lespault-Martillac has a delineated, mineral bouquet with touches of mint infusing the red berry fruit. It is almost Pauillac-like in style. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and some lovely ferrous black fruit. This feels harmonious and assured. The oak is nicely integrated on the chocolate-tinged finish. Very fine.
