Dark ruby color, with mineral, tobacco and cherry aromas. Full-bodied and very fine, with solid tannins and a long, silky finish. Seems closed still. One of the best wines ever from this estate. --1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2003. (JS)
One of the finest of the lesser known Graves chateaux, La Louviere has been making terrific wine since the late eighties. Both vintages performed well in my 89/90 blind tastings. The 1990 exhibits a saturated purple color, a less-evolved nose of black fruits, smoke, and grilled meats, full body, low acidity, and intense, concentrated fruit, all crammed into a layered, pure, sweet, fruity, ripe wine. While not yet mature, it is delicious to drink. (RP)
