Les Lions de La Louvière White

André Lurton chose this name in honour of the two impressive stone lions that watch over the entrance to Château La Louvière. The grapes come from specific plots on the estate. The wine is very attractive: elegant, round and fruity.

label of 2014 Les Lions de La Louvière white
Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Wine style

Fresh and Fruity

Grape blend

100% Sauvignon Blanc


Winter and spring were very mild, but the summer of 2014 did not live up to our expectations: it rained heavily in July, and August was much cooler than usual. However, starting in September, a miraculous Indian summer with high temperatures, was very favourable to ripening.

Tasting Comment


Lovely crystal-clear pale yellow with green highlights.


Discreet fruity nose displaying slight acidity and hints of grapefruit.


The flavour is strongly marked by varietal Sauvignon Blanc characteristics. The wine's aromatic power, richness, and attractive middle palate give it enormous charm. The aftertaste is vivacious and refreshing, with hints of citrus (grapefruit). This white Pessac-Léognan is a treat with such dishes as paella, tuna, and veal blanquette.
