L de La Louvière White

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > L de La Louvière Blanc

Château La Louvière's second wine, L de La Louvière, is made with the same care and attention as its older brother. This wine is immensely attractive thanks to its roundness and fruitiness. It is produced according to traditional methods with a few modern touches in a prestigious location where art reigns alongside winegrowing.


2015 white L de La Louvière label
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon blanc

Weather

2015 was the third warmest year since 1900... Drought conditions, above-average monthly temperatures and sunshine (in the first half of the year), cool nights and hot weather in August accompanying véraison (colour change) were all ideal for the vines!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Charming, bright, delicate pale yellow colour.

Nose

A bouquet of medium intensity with aromas of white fruit (peach, quince), honeysuckle, and a touch of honey. 

Mouth

Starts out with floral nuances, going on to develop citrus flavours that fill the mouth.  The acidity is well balanced. The aftertaste is very round. This L de La Louvière is ideal with salmon, tuna, and white meats.

Consumption period

2016 - 2026
