From another of the estates owned by proprietor André Lurton, the 2005 La Louvière is a rich, dense, dark ruby/purple-colored wine. Still showing considerable tannin and structure, it is remarkably youthful and tastes more like a 2- to 3-year-old wine than one that is a decade old. Loads of tobacco leaf, blackcurrant, lead pencil and spice box are all present in this medium to full-bodied, well-endowed wine. Forget it for several years and drink it over the following 15+. Drink 2018 - 2033. (RP)
Black in color, with intense aromas of blackberry, raisin and toasty oak. Turns to violet. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a mineral, licorice and berry aftertaste. Tight. Best after 2013. (JS)
Tasted blind. Dark lustrous crimson. Some real interest on the nose. Very charming texture (tannins well in retreat). Much more evolved than most, but it tastes a bit fragile. A different stage of evolution from most. Drink to 2023. (JR)
Full red-ruby. Youthfully medicinal aroma of kirsch Juicy, primary and tightly wound but with good underlying intensity. This classically dry, structured, serious wine will need several years of bottle aging. Finishes with ripe, spreading tannins. (ST)
