Critic Notes

The Lurton whites are all a success this year, and this is a lovely bright, zippy and well-defined example. It has some excellent white pear and peach flesh flavours that persist right through the palate. It's great quality with real personality, and should be excellent value. Buy.

I loved the 2017 Château La Louvière Blanc, a juicy, perfumed, yet also textured and concentrated beauty that offers lots of spice, citrus, and orange blossom characteristics. Even in a vintage where the region was slammed by April frost, the Pessac-Léognan region continues to produce a bevy of brilliant whites.

Score: 91-93/100Jeb Dunnuck

The 2017 La Louvière Blanc has a reserved bouquet at first, one that requires encouragement from the glass, eventually revealing light orange blossom and lemon zest notes. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, quite sharp but with persistent length and a residual spiciness that lingers in the mouth. I suspect this will have more to give once in bottle.

Some cream and apple character. Full to medium body and a soft and velvety texture. A friendly and delicious wine already.

Score: 90-91/100James Suckling

The 2017 La Louvière Blanc is wonderfully textured and nuanced. White orchard fruit, smoke and apple notes abound in this layered, nuanced Blanc. There is so much to enjoy and appreciate, not the least of which is the wine's personality.

The 2017 La Louviere Blanc is scented of grapefruit, peaches and lemon curd with ginger hints. The palate is medium-bodied, zesty, intense and crisp with a long finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com

Creamy pear aroma. Deep citrus. Relatively simple but correct. Clean-cut lemon-cordial flavour, a little short. (JH)
