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 2020 L de La Louvière white
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

Sauvignon blanc 100%

Weather

2020 was marked by very mild temperatures and contrasting precipitation: heavy spring rainfall was followed by an intense summer drought. The fairly mild winter led to early bud break. The summer heat gave way to cool nights in late August, ideal for ripening grapes.

Tasting Comment

Appearance

Clear colour, a nice golden yellow, quite pale, with silver reflections.

Nose

Nose is elegant, mineral, marked by typical notes of the Sauvignon grape variety: citrus fruits (grapefruit, lemon), but also white fruits (white peach), white flowers...

Mouth

The attack is frank. The mouth is gourmet, well balanced, with fatness. The freshness is there, with citrus notes (lemon, grapefruit). The oak is very light and well blended. The finish is very refreshing. It is a fruity and elegant wine, which will be very enjoyable with a fish dish (blanquette of salmon), a veal shank with carrots or even a scampi risotto.

2022 - 2026
