The complexity and fruity framework of a Pessac-Léognan white wine
The name of Château La Louvière suggests that the origins of the estate date back to the 13th century, when the provost of Léognan, Guilhem de la Louvière, gave his name to the château. After passing through the hands of the Guilloche and Chartreux families, in 1791 the château became the property of Jean-Baptiste Marheilac, a major Bordeaux merchant. He had François Lhote build the superb château which is still today one of the most beautiful in the Bordeaux vineyards. Thanks to the good care of the Marheilac family, which remained the owners for more than two centuries, the wines of the estate have become one of the greatest wines of the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Today, the château belongs to the André Lurton family, an important Bordeaux wine family.
Château La Louvière 2022 Blanc is a Pessac-Léognan wine made from a vineyard of 11.8 hectares. The vines are 28 years old on average and are planted on deep gravel and outcrops of limestone and clay. Thanks to its environmentally friendly viticulture, the château is recognised as a High Environmental Value estate (Level 3/3).
