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.


Label of 2016 white L de La Louvière
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon blanc

Weather

2016 was one of the finest vintages in the past 20 years. Winter was exceptionally wet and mild, and it rained a great deal in spring until June. However, the weather changed radically in mid-June, turning warm and quite dry, with cool nights. Ideal conditions for growing excellent wine grapes!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

2016 white L de La Louvière has a brilliant, vivacious, pale yellow colour.

Nose

The expressive bouquet displays attractive aromas of white fruit (peach, nectarine), tropical fruit (peach, lychee) and a slight smoky note.

Mouth

Especially pleasant on the palate. Beautifully round and easy to drink with a remarkably long aftertaste. Very fresh with marked lemon notes and some tropical fruit (pineapple). Ideal with all sorts of fish and seafood as well as chicken and risotto.

Consumption period

2017 - 2027
