Since the late eighteenth century, the family of the Counts Lafond has had the largest and most renowned vineyards of Pouilly Fumé. Patrick Baron de Ladoucette, great grand son of Lafond Counts, continued this tradition of high quality and produced this great white wine Ladoucette, global benchmark Sauvignon.
Pale golden-green color. Considerable intensity on the nose. It has an exceptional full range of floral, exotic and citrus fruit aromas such as white blossoms, hawthorn, broom and white nettles and grapefruit. These notes are enhanced and strengthened by the mineral note of gunflint (flint stone heated by the sun). The flavor is pleasant and lively, tempered by a fruity roundness with notes of pear, green apples and citrus fruits, which boost the mineral and stony hardness of gunflint. The finish brings to mind a pleasant lemony freshness.
