Winery notes:

"Château La Louvière has long been famous for its white wines.  In fact, these already highly-prized by Canadian merchants in the 17th century ! A century later, they were to be found on the finest tables in Saint Petersburg.The 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. Marked by the Sauvignon Blanc varietal character, but not overly so, it can age remarkably well.

"Attack is ample. It is a fine and elegant wine, with a lot of volume in the middle of the mouth: a nice fatness, a nice freshness, a well-integrated woodiness. The notes of ripe white fruit (pear, peach) and citrus peel blend harmoniously together, enhanced by a hint of vanilla. Long and complex finish. All the qualities of this great white wine can be appreciated with "bouchées à la Reine" with sweetbreads, baked fish, or a cheese platter.

Critical acclaim:
 
"“95 points. Fragrant nose of lemongrass, lime zest, green pineapple, cloves and herbs. Vibrant and zesty, with a medium body. Driven. Plenty of tension and length, slowly evolving to cream, orange zest and white chocolate. Fantastic this year. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling
 
"95 points. “95 points. Beautifully fruity while also showing texture that will allow for plenty of aging, this is richly complex wine. With acidity shooting through the wine, it has great freshness as well as concentration.” - Wine Enthusiast
