Château La Louvière has long been famous for its white wines. In fact, it was already highly-prized by Canadian merchants in the 17th century ! A century later, they were to be found on the finest tables in Russia. This very elegant white La Louvière is now among the finest dry white wines in the Graves, and is a fine ambassador for the Pessac-Léognan appellation.
The nose is well-defined and mineral. Still very young and quite elegant, this wine has yet to reveal its full complexity. However, its class already comes through in the mineral and floral aromas released when the wine is swirled in the glass. Things are different on the palate, where the wine is already quite impressive: broad-based, generous, and bursting with floral, fruity flavours - apricot and pink grapefruit - with rare concentration. Green coffee bean and toasty notes gradually come to the fore, reflecting barrel ageing and lees stiring that contributes to very long ageing potential. Marvellous with an old Comté cheese or caviar from Aquitaine!
