Description

Loudenne Le Chateau is bottled as a Médoc Cru Bourgeois.

Chateau Loudenne is inextricably linked with the British wine trade. Built in the 17th century, Loudenne had many owners until 1875 when it was sold to two English brothers, Walter and Alfred Gilbey. The Gilbeys were already well known wine and spirit merchants in London and producers of the gin of the same name. The wines of Loudenne prospered in the British trade, surviving two world wars and underwent a renovation programme in the 1960s and 70s. Under the energetic and experienced management of Martin Bamford MW, Château Loudenne remained part of Gilbey”s despite successive take-overs. Finally owned by Diageo, who eventually sold the Château after more than a century of English ownership. In March 2000 the Château was bought by the Lafragette family who had established their reputation in the Cognac industry. They have done much work in the vineyard and the winery, improved the cellars and opened up the château to receive visitors including a wonderful wine museum. Today their daughter Florence runs the château with her youthful energy and a modern approach to Bordeaux wine marketing. She belongs to a new generation of young Bordelais proprietors who are determined to change some of the old fashioned perceptions of Bordeaux and reinvigorate the market for the region’s wines.

Loudenne Le Chateau 2009 is a blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 % Cabernet Franc and 1 % Malbec.

Tasting Notes

From Loudenne:

“Beautiful purple color slightly orangeon the glass rim. The nose is open with powerful flavors of black fruit, chocolate, raisins and toasted. On the palate, the wine
is balanced, full-bodied and generous with a nice acidity. The aromas of fruit and spices dominate. The finish is long with beautiful silky tannins.”
