Ch. Loudenne Medoc 2011

29-Jun-2017
Built in the 17th century, Ch. Loudenne is one of the oldest Cru Bourgeois and one of the most well-known, as it is the first chateau visitors to the Medoc come to via the Atlantic and Gironde. Its pink façade is famous and memorable. The property has always had a reputation of offering very good value and high quality white and red wine. Ch. Loudenne has 60 ha of vines, 51 ha planted to 52% Merlot, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, plus 9 ha planted to 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon. The vines have an average age of 35 years.

The property has the consultation of Michel Rolland, and in 2013 was acquired by the Kweichow Moutai Chinese spirit group, one of the most valuable global concerns in liquor. In association with the Camus Cognac house, they have increased investment and relaunched the wine. It is thought that the improvements could bring the property to superior classed growth level. The wine is distributed in New Zealand by Stephen Bennett MW. For availability contact Stephen on Email: [email protected]
