Description

A Pessac-Léognan with a full-bodied style and delicate fruitiness

The property

The name of Château La Louviere suggests that the origins of the estate date 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 Andre Lurton family, a great Bordeaux wine family.

The vineyard

This Château La Louvière 2020 comes from a vineyard with an area of ​​46 hectares in the Pessac-Léognan appellation. There, a terroir influenced of deep gravel is planted with vines aged 26 years on average, 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot. Thanks to its environmentally friendly viticulture, the château is recognised for its ​​High Environmental Value (Level 3/3).

The vintage

Like the 2010 vintage, 2020 turns out to be of excellent quality. The 2020 vintage yielded particularly exceptional for Merlot, which is why the grape dominating the final blend of this wine. This particularity of the 2020 vintage is reflected in the great intensity of the fruit and a silky finish.

The vinification and ageing

After the manual harvest, complete vinification is carried out in several types of vesseld: oak vats, 500-litre barrels and terracotta amphorae. The fermentation time in the tank is long and the wine ages for 12 months, 90% in barrels (half of which are of new oak) and 10% in terracotta amphorae.

The blend

Merlot (65%) and cabernet sauvignon (35%).

The tasting

The Château La Louvière 2020 reveals itself to be a full-bodied wine with a delicate fruity expression.
