Château La Louviere Pessac Léognan Blanc 2017
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Pessac-Leognan|
|Brand||Château La Louviere|
Tight, with a quinine and fleur de sel frame around brisk yellow apple core, star fruit and jicama flavors. A bracing edge continues through the chalk-lined finish. Very pure now. Should soften and broaden with a touch of cellaring. Drink now through 2024. 5,833 cases made.
The 2017 La Louvière Blanc is a white of real character. Tangerine peel, apricot, crushed rocks and slate are some of the many notes that abound in a white endowed with notable cut and vibrancy. More than that, the 2017 speaks with tons of personality.
The 2017 La Louviere Blanc is scented of grapefruit, peaches and lemon curd with ginger hints. The palate is medium-bodied, zesty, intense and crisp with a long finish.
The 2017 Chateau La Louviere Blanc is also solid and well worth drinking. Notes of ripe pineapple, citrus, and honeyed flowers all give way to a medium-bodied, soft, supple white that's nicely balanced and already drinking nicely. Enjoy it over the coming 3-5 years.
