Suckling: "Crushed-berry and dark-chocolate aromas and flavors. Medium body. Pretty finish."
Dunnuck: "I loved the 2021 Château Lespault-Martillac, a ripe, textured, balanced wine that excels in the vintage. Based on 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Petit Verdot, resting in 50% new oak, it has beautiful density and depth as well as notes of blue, almost black fruits, tobacco, scorched earth, and graphite. My money is certainly on this being an outstanding wine."
Galloni: "The 2021 Lespault-Martillac is packed with inky red/purplish fruit, spice and mocha. There's more Cabernet Sauvignon than usual in this year's blend, and that comes through in the wine's aromatic profile. The 2021 is not super complex, but it is supremely delicious and very easy to like."
Wine Advocate: "Delivering aromas of smoky berries, plums, loamy soil and toasty oak, the 2021 Lespault-Martillac is medium to full-bodied, seamless and charming, with velvety tannins and a sapid finish. This fine effort is a blend of 60% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and fully 13% Petit Verdot."
Decanter: "Scented nose, aromatics to the fore. Juicy, sweet raspberry and strawberry. Smooth and refined on the palate, tannins are fine but do well to support the fruit which has more of a darker tone. A sweetness and soft jamminess gives a plump feeling while still actually being direct and focused. This has a sleekness, a drive from start to finish in one layer, giving black fruits with liquorice and crushed stone nuances. Good stuff."
