The colour is a bright crimson red. On the nose, intense aromas of red berries such as raspberry and blackcurrant, accompanied by notes of smoke, toasted bread and cherry. Lively, fruity attack in the mouth, then round and easy to drink. Complex finish with subtle spicy and woody notes. It has a rich tannic character, which ensures the evolution of the wine.
The estate is now owned by Baron Patrick de Ladoucette, a descendant of the Comte Lafond, and Pouilly Fumé has earned a reputation as one of the world’s great white wines.
After taking over Ladoucette in 1972, the Baron extended his activities to Sancerre, Chablis, Vouvray and Chinon.
Today, the Baron produces outstanding Loire Valley wines under the de Ladoucette, Marc Bredif, La Poussie, Regnard and Baron Patrick labels. Many of the wines, including the Pouilly Fumé de Ladoucette, Baron de L and Comte Lafond, are considered to be the finest examples of their type.
