L de La Louvière White

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.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Tasters often use the word "elegant" to describe L de La Louvière. While it may not be as concentrated as the grand vin, it has much the same refinement and balance. Made entirely from Sauvignon Blanc, the 2011 is a brilliant pale green colour.

Nose

It has a delicate bouquet that releases complex aromas of lime blossom, smoke and peach as it warms up in the glass.

Mouth

The wine is every bit as refined on the palate, developing delicious flavours and a very long aftertaste underpinned by an attractive freshness. It is easy to imagine with a variety of foods such as cod fish dishes, goat's cheese, etc.

Consumption period

2013 - 2021
