An expert's opinion

It is always with a touch of nostalgia that I speak of this bourgeois Loudenne Cru. An elegant and classy castle as we saw with the 2007 vintage. Here, the 2008 offers us a nice complexity made of notes of fruits, spices, toast and chocolate. The wine is full of character, even with a certain masculinity at the finish. In short, a real Médoc!

The estate

Château Loudenne

The Pink Castle! This eighteenth-century building is so named because of its pale pink facades and delicate English roses that are grown there. The vineyard is located 6 km from Saint-Estèphe, and is guided under the guidance of Michel Rolland since the 2000's. At Château Loudenne, 50 hectares are reserved mostly for cultivating Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
