Winemaker's Notes

Powerful, complex bouquet, with notes of candied and dried fruits. Rich, opulent and with a long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"An intensely herbaceous wine, with delicious flavors of grapefruit, apricot juice and spice. The finish is lively and fruity, with mineral acidity.
Barrel Sample: 94-96 Points"

"Offers lots of crunchy honeysuckle, Meyer lemon and grapefruit pulp notes, with a backdrop of straw and salted butter that should fill in with more time. Rock-solid.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 points"
93 Points

"Pale straw-green. A strong note of vanilla complement pure aromas of white peach, minerals and chlorophyll. Bright, juicy and dense, with multilayered saline flavors of white fruit, lemon verbena and gin. Finishes long and pure, with lovely mineral tang. La Louvière is better and better with each passing year.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points"

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
