Description

The freshness and intensity of a Pessac-Léognan white wine

The estate

The name of Château La Louvière suggests that the origins of the estate hark back to the 13th century, when the provost of Léognan Guilhem de la Louvière would have given his name to the castle. After having shone in the hands of the Guilloche and Chartreux families, in 1791 the estate became the property of Jean-Baptiste Marheilac, a great merchant from Bordeaux. He asked François Lhote to build the superb castle which still stands out today as one of the most beautiful of Bordeaux. Thanks to the great attention paid by the Marheilac family, who remained the owners for more than two centuries, the estate's wines stand out as some of the greatest wines of the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Today, the château belongs to the family of André Lurton, a great Bordeaux wine family.

The vineyard

Château La Louvière 2021 is a white wine from Pessac-Léognan made from a 15-hectare vineyard. The vines are 27 years old on average and are planted in deep gravel soils and outcrops of limestone and clay. Thanks to its environmentally friendly viticultural practices, the château is a High Environmental Value estate (Level 3/3).

The vintage

The frost at the beginning of April had a strong impact on the white parcels located at the bottom of the slopes. Despite low yields (40% of normal volume), the grapes harvested boast a high quality.

Vinification and ageing

Manual harvesting. Maceration on fine lees before pressing and alcoholic fermentation in 600-litre barrels and demi-muid. Aged for 10 months in barrels on its lees with regular stirring.

The blend

Sauvignon Blanc (100%).
