Chateau la Louviere Pessac-Leognan Blanc 2009

Member Review by Matt Walker:

Still probably my favorite region for Sauvignon Blanc, and this wine reaffirms it. A lovely creamy texture (thanks to significant barrel aging) but without any woody flavors. Honeysuckle aromas give way to a lightly honeyed palette already beginning to develop a tiny touch of nuttiness. Candied lemons, and quince on the palette with a wonderful line of minerality and a long finish.
