2020 Château La Louvière  (Pessac-Léognan) 92

Flowers, blackberry, currants and blueberry aromatics blend together perfectly in the perfume. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, elegant, soft and lively, with a polished touch to the tannins in the finish. This should age for at least 2 decades with little trouble. 91-93 Pts

Barely ripe pears, green apples, grapefruit, waxy lemon and lime with ginger and honeysuckle create an intense perfume. On the palate the wine is fresh, juicy, energetic and sweet, with a crispness and purity to the array of citrus that stands out in the crowd, carrying through to the finish. 92 Pts

2019 Château La Louvière  (Pessac-Léognan) 92

Lush, round, sweet, fresh, juicy red fruits with chocolate and smoky accents show up easily. The fruit expands on the palate with more of that sweet, chocolate overtone and silky tannins. Give this 5-7 years for more complexity and softness. 91-93 Pts

2018 Château La Louvière  (Pessac-Léognan) 93

Tobacco leaf, cedar, spearmint, red fruits and herbs are all over the place. On the palate the wine is elegant, fresh, soft and silky, with layers of fruit and tobacco in every swirl, sniff and sip.
