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 2019 L de La Louvière white
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon blanc 100%

Weather

2019 was marked by a fairly mild winter, resulting in early bud break. Spring rainfall was scarce and drought conditions set in in early summer. Rainfall in August provided a welcome relief for winegrowers.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

A pretty yellow colour, quite pale, with green and silver reflections.

Nose

Expressive and complex on the nose, revealing delicious notes of white fruit (nectarine) and also exotic fruit.

Mouth

Lots of freshness and roundness on the palate, leading to a nice finish. On the palate, flavours of white fruit, lemony notes associated with a light oaky note. An elegant wine that can be tasted with warm asparagus with boiled egg and capers, marinated prawns, or Ossau-Iraty cheese.

Consumption period

2021 - 2025
