L de La Louvière Red

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

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 2015 red L de La Louvière
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Rich and Powerful

Grape blend

Cabernet Sauvignon 70% / Merlot 30%

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

Brilliant deep, nearly garnet-red colour.

Nose

The attractive nose of red fruit (redcurrant), blackcurrant, and a hint of tobacco is very typical of Pessac-Léognan.

Mouth

Rich and delicious on the palate with beautiful balance. The hints of black and red fruit carry over from the bouquet. Wonderfully long, this 2015 red L de La Louvière is a delight with poultry, veal, and cheeses.

Consumption period

2018 - 2022
