Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(JS=94-95) This is really tangy and fresh for the vintage, yet remains dense and structured in the middle palate. Full and flavorful. Excellent potential here. Well done.
(WS=93) Quite plump, with a note of candied lemon peel amid the racier white peach, verbena and lemon zest flavors. Lots of honeysuckle and straw accents line the finish. Drink now through 2023. 5,833 cases made.
(RP=91-93) The La Louviere 2018 Blanc leaps from the glass with pronounced grapefruit, lemon curd and honeysuckle scents with touches of mango and pineapple plus a waft of ginger. Medium-bodied, the palate is filled with intense citrus and tropical layers plus a satiny texture and oodles of freshness to lift the finish.
(AG=90-92) The 2018 La Louviere Blanc is laced with hints of peach, apricot, slate, baked apple and a hint of toastiness that develops on the finish. Delicate and yet beautifully persistent, the 2018 Blanc has a lot to offer.
