94pts, Wine Enthusiast
Pure Sauvignon, this is a tropical fruit flavored wine. It's bright and fruity while also showing a dense texture of grapefruit and steely minerality. The combination makes for an intense wine that's likely to need time, so drink from 2017. – Roger Voss

90pts, Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Tasted blind at the Southwold 2012 tasting. The 2012 Château La Louvière Blanc has a feisty and attractive bouquet: lemon curd, citrus fruit and beeswax scents all leaping from the glass. The palate is very well balanced with decent weight, though it does not deliver the same complexity as the aromatics. The acidity is well judged and there are attractive ginger and grilled walnut notes. I would leave this another year and see if it can evolve more nuances in bottle, but I was pleased to see this gaining substance since I last tasted it in barrel. Tasted January 2016. Drink 2017-2030 – Neal Martin

A refined and minerally white with sliced-apple, honey and chalk character. Medium to full body, fresh acidity and a clean finish. Drink now.

91pts, Wine Spectator
This is juicy and well-packed, showing notes of singed straw and paraffin, with lots of zippy lemon zest, grapefruit curd, tarragon and quinine accents. Really kicks in on the finish. A rock-solid style that needs a touch of cellaring. Best from 2015 through 2018. 4,500 cases made.

The screwcap enclosure here is keeping this wine ridiculously fresh, vibrant and full of that Sauvignon Blanc grapefruit acidity we know and love oh so very much. Complexity is the name of the game with this wine with notes of mint, crushed rock, lemon/lime, slice apples, chalk, ginger and beeswax.

THE STORY TO KNOW

Château La Louvière has long been famous for its white wines.  In fact, these already highly-prized by Canadian merchants in the 17th century ! A century later, they were to be found on the finest tables in Russia.The very elegant white La Louvière is now among the finest dry white wines in the Graves, and is a fine ambassador for the Pessac-Léognan appellation. Marked by the Sauvignon Blanc varietal character, but not overly so, it can age remarkably well.
