Sommelier Notes: Sauvignon Blanc in Languedoc? YES! At La Louvière they have all the parameters right to grow this grape which loves a cool climate and moderate growing conditions. All of this is present in the Malepere, one of the coolest wine areas over here. Most of the vines are planted on Northern slopes which gives freshness and minerality which is so the character you look for in Sauvignon Blanc! Winner!
