Description

An exceptional vintage Médoc wine

The estate

Located at Saint-Yzans-de-Médoc, in the heart of the Médoc, Château Loudenne traces its origins back to the 17th century. Counted among the oldest estates of the Médoc, this Bordeaux Left Bank property is notable for its pink walls. Having seen several owners, Château Loudenne was acquired in 2022 by businessman Christophe Gouache, who also owns Château Bellerive.

The vineyard

Château Loudenne is a wine that comes from vineyards that are on average 41 years old, planted on two clay graves garonnaises hilltops in the heart of the winemaking region of Bordeaux. Reigning over a terroir of 132 hectares, of which 31 are designated for red wine, Château Loudenne is renowned for being one of the estates closest to the Gironde estuary. This unique geographical spot ensures a natural protection against frost, granting optimal ripening conditions for the grapes.

The vintage

The rainy spring built up groundwater. Flowering and setting of the fruit were developed in favourable conditions thanks to hot, dry weather. The long, sunny days along with little rain brought a great acidity to the grapes. The autumn, following the same weather patterns as the summer, was hot and sunny, leaving the grapes to reach an impeccable ripeness. The 2009 vintage was exceptional.

Winemaking and ageing

Vinification took place in thermoregulated stainless steel and concrete vats. Vatting took three weeks with the addition of treading the cap and pumping over. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrels where the wine was aged for 12 months. Michel Rolland and Athanase Fakorellis, two well known œnologists, were consulted over the winemaking process.

Blend

Merlot 55%
Cabernet sauvignon 40%
Cabernet franc 4%
