Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Viognier

A while back when our Grand Crew Classé manager Claire attended a tasting at the French Ambassador's residence, La Louvière's beautiful, quirky wine labels caught her eye. When the team later sampled the wines, everyone was really impressed by the character and balance achieved at such a reasonable price.

'La Muse' is part of the domaine's 'Les Tentations' collection; the wines have matured in stainless steel tanks and oak barrels, have a feminine touch and a very special demanding character of their own.

"Peaches, apricots and mango on the nose, with jasmin, bergamot and white flowers. On the pallet all the characteristics of each grape variety; stone fruit from the Viognier, tropical from from the Chardonnay and orchard from the Chenin Blanc, with a soft-rounded mouthfeel. "
Claire McKinney, Honest Grapes

"Overlooking the majestic Pyrenees Mountain chain, these spectacular vines of Viogner, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc aim to reach the pinnacle, and have succeeded. Delicate perfumes of apricot, mango and blossom, coupled with a full body, real density and a clean crisp finish."
La Louvière

Enjoy this lovely wine with fish, Indian and Moroccan cuisine.

Domaine La Louvière

Languedoc-Roussillon



The name Domaine La Louvière is inseparably associated with the wolf. Venerated and feared, on the one hand the wolf is an enemy and competitor, on the other a selfless creature within the social network of the family, and humans are fascinated by wolves because we are so similar. In days of old wolves gathered on the foothills of the Pyrenees to watch the countryside and pick up the scent for the hunt. The vineyards of the Domaine now cover these gathering sites for wolves – the Louvière.

The domaine lies at the foot of the Pyrenees about 30 kilometres southwest of the imposing fortress town of Carcassonne in the Malepère region. This harsh and original landscape is characterised by a unique microclimate: alternately pampered by the warm breeze of the Mediterranean and tested by the cool influence of the Atlantic and the Pyrenees, the grapes ripen in climatic tension. The soil is another special feature of the terroir, responsible for the less than flattering name of Malepère (literally ‘poor stone’): clay, sandstone and limestone as well as large boulders. It ensures a special mineralisation of the vines and has an enormous heat-storage potential – protecting the vines on cool nights.
