    Château Latour Martillac (Latour being written as one word since 1990) takes its name from the 12th century tower that stands at its entrance. The vineyard lies on a fine gravelly hill near the village of Martillac. Acquired by Alfred Kressmann in 1930, the property is now managed by his descendants, Tristan and Loïc Kressmann. The original label designed by Alfred Kressmann and his son Jean in 1934 is still used on bottles of Château Latour Martillac, which was served in 1936 by the Wine and Spirit Benevolent Society in London at the banquet for the coronation of George VI of England. The vineyard is planted on a sandy-clay and gravel soil and produces both red and white wines, the latter accounting for 20 to 25% of the harvest depending on the year. After the carefully conducted harvests, the grapes are destemmed and sorted by hand. The red wines are made from a blend of three grape varieties (60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot) and aged for 15 to 18 months in oak barrels, one third of which are renewed each year. Only the best batches are used in the grand vin, with grapes from the younger vines being used to make wines under the Lagrave Martillac label. The white grape varieties, consisting of 55% Sémillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle, are picked in a series of selective harvests as they ripen. The white wines are matured on the lees for a year, and then bottled in dark bottles, to protect them as they age for several decades.
