About the winery
The white wine, a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, is dry, crisp, elegant, fruity, and long-lived. The red wine, made with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, is strong, firm, and aromatic. Although powerful, it shows considerable charm and finesse – qualities that improve with age. The wines are made traditionally with state-of-the-art equipment.

History & Geography
The history of Château La Louvière, located south of the city of Bordeaux, in the heart of the Pessac-Léognan appellation, goes back seven centuries. Records show that wine was already made here in 1310. However, the vineyard as we know it today dates from the early 16th century thanks to the impetus of members of the Bordeaux parliament. The Carthusian monks, who inherited the estate in 1620, contributed their experience and expertise to producing wines that acquired an international reputation. In 1791, J.B. Mareilhac built the present-day château according to plans by architect F. Lhote. The rooms were decorated by F. L. Lonsing, a famous Flemish painter of that period. The Château was designated a listed historic monument in 1991. André Lurton bought the château and its 62 hectares of grounds in 1965. Today, there are 48 hectares of vines bordering on châteaux Carbonnieux and Haut-Bailly. The soil is varied: gravelly, siliceous, and limestone at the foot of the slopes.
