Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(RP=88) One of the finest of the lesser known Graves chateaux, La Louviere has been making terrific wine since the late eighties. Both vintages performed well in my 89/90 blind tastings. The 1989 is the softer, more developed of the two vintages, displaying a dark ruby/purple color with some lightening at the edge. The wine offers a ripe, curranty nose intertwined with scents of new oak, herbs, olives, and tobacco. Medium-bodied, soft, and smoothly-textured, this lush wine should drink well for 8-10 years.
