Ch La Louviere 1995

Robe tending amber but good clear depth of red. Nose very alive – blackcurrant, forest floor and plums with a touch of lanolin. Tannins a bit forward with a hint of greenness, but plums, tobacco and fruit are there on top. Mellow and balanced, although a little tannic on the finish.

Péssac-Leognan, Bordeaux, France
