Les Lions de La Louvière Red

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.

Appellation : Pessac-Léognan

Tasting Comment


Beautiful cherry-red colour.


Discreet at first, the nose gradually reveals slightly oaky notes (cedar), alongside a delicious array of red fruit notes (cherry), and, to top it all off, subtle hints of spice.


Starts out clear-cut on the palate, with good tension, yet in no way aggressive. The tannins are smooth and elegant, paving the way for a particularly impressive finish. Delicious red fruit notes (cherry) make for a charming wine. Elegant and fresh, this 2017 Lions de La Louvière is the perfect accompaniment to delicatessen meats or a chorizo omelette. After ageing for a few years, it will go beautifully with a cep mushroom risotto or pork stir fry with mushrooms.

Ratings and reviews

James Suckling : 
 - Note : 
91.00 / 100

Nicely played complexity here, offering earthy aromas with tobacco and cassis. The mix of soft, red and dark-berry flesh and smoothly rendered tannins make this Pessac very approachable. Drink or hold.
