Brand Château La Louviere
Alcohol/vol 14%
Brilliant, pale-yellow color. Understated at first, the nose gradually opens up with aeration, revealing pleasant floral and citrus notes, enhanced by delicate and particularly well-integrated oaky aromas. Incredibly voluminous and rich on the palate, with a lovely long aftertaste, underpinned by vanilla overtones. This wine is the perfect accompaniment to a meal from the starter to the cheese platter. Pair with asparagus in gribiche sauce, turbot with morel mushrooms, hard cheeses (Cantal, Beaufort, etc.)

From one of several estates owned by the Lurton family in Pessac-Léognan, this wine is floral, ripe and packed with tangy, citrus acidity. Wood aging has smoothed the tight, mineral texture and brought up the fruitiness. Drink the wine from 2022.

Quite plump, with a note of candied lemon peel amid the racier white peach, verbena and lemon zest flavors. Lots of honeysuckle and straw accents line the finish. Drink now through 2023. 5,833 cases made.

A rocking Graves white, the 2018 Château La Louvière Blanc boasts a vivid gold hue as well as classic notes of honeyed limes, grapefruit, crushed stone, and flowers. Nicely textured and medium-bodied, with bright acidity and a clean, dry finish, it's well worth seeking out and will keep for over a decade.

The La Louviere 2018 Blanc needs a little swirling to unlock vibrant notes of white peaches, fresh pears and lemon curd with touches of jasmine, lime cordial and coriander seed. The medium-bodied palate delivers racy citrus and apple flavors with a suggestion of creaminess to the texture and a provocative chalkiness on the finish.

The 2018 La Louvière Blanc has an attractive bouquet of pear, peach skin, elderflower and light melted wax scents. Somehow it brings to mind a South African Chenin! The palate is fresh and vivacious on the entry and offers orange peel mixed with Nashi pear and subtle saline notes toward the finish. Plenty of energy here. This is the best of the four La Louvières that I tasted in 2018.
