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 2019 L de La Louvière red
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Merlot 60% / Cabernet Sauvignon 40%

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

Colour, of a beautiful intensity, is cherry red, with some garnet reflections.

Nose

Spicy nose, revealing notes of red fruits (cherry), candied fruits, vanilla; the whole associated with a light toast.

Mouth

The attack is powerful. There is a beautiful expression in the middle of the mouth, a nice balance between volume and tannic structure. We find here the tasty cherry notes perceived on the nose, slightly spicy. Good length. This is a wine full of charm that can be fully appreciated with a grilled sirloin of beef, a roast pork with chanterelles, or an old Mimolette cheese.
