A strong note of vanilla complement pure aromas of white peach minerals and chlorophyll. Bright juicy and dense with multilayered saline flavors of white fruit lemon verbena and gin. Finishes long and pure with lovely mineral tang. La Louvière is better and better with each passing year.

Fermented in vat then aged for 10 months in a mix of one-third each of new one-year and two-year old oak. Planted on mixed gravel and silica soils atop limestone subsoil. An almost honeyed character to the nose with rich waxy citrus and grapefruit rind aromas. This is mineral-driven with a round texture and grapefruit and passion fruit flavors before finishing with good length. Should drink nicely for the next 5-10 years.
