2018 Château La Louvière  (Pessac-Léognan) 93

Cigar lovers are going to like this wine with all its tobacco essence but so are wine lovers! The darkest vintage ever from La Louviere, the wine is gorgeous. Rich, opulent, soft and vibrant, the fruit is ripe, sweet and spicy. The volume, depth and length here is something I have never seen here before. I'm loving it! 92-94 Pts

1975 Château La Louvière Blanc  (Pessac-Léognan) 88

The oldest wine I've ever tasted from this estate continues to offer interest, with its slightly honeyed citrus, and stony components. The fruit is taking on a sight petrol character, so I would not continue pressing your luck holding on this, if you have a bottle or two hanging around.
