    The balance and aromatic palette of a Pessac-Leognan wine

    The estate

    The name of Chateau La Louviere suggests that the origins of the estate hark back to the 13th century, when the provost of Leognan Guilhem de la Louviere 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-Leognan appellation. Today, the chateau belongs to the family of Andre Lurton, a great Bordeaux wine family.

    The vineyard

    Chateau La Louviere 2021 is a Pessac-Leognan wine from a 46-hectare vineyard. The vines are 27 years old on average and are planted on deep gravel soils. Thanks to its environmentally friendly viticultural practices, the chateau is a High Environmental Value estate (Level 3/3).

    The vintage

    The year 2021 is marked by unstable weather. A major frost episode in April preceded strong mildew pressure and then a particularly cool summer. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, which predominantly makes up the blend, is the grape variety which benefited most from the mild conditions at the end of summer.

    Vinification and aging

    Following manual harvesting, a complete vinification is carried out in several types of containers: wooden rolls, 500-liter barrels and terracotta amphorae. Long vatting time. Aged for 12 months in barrels (40-50% new) and 15% in terracotta amphorae.

    The blend

    Chateau La Louviere 2021 red wine comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (65%) and Merlot (35%).
