This wine is pale gold in colour with hints of green. On the nose it demonstrates the classic aromas of Sauvignon Blanc such as lemon, grapefruit and pear balanced against a mineral and flint background noted in quality Loire wines. The palate has crisp fresh acidity with ample citrus- lemon characters and a lingering mineral finish. This wine is drinking well now.
Will accompany a variety of foods, particularly fish and seafood dishes.
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.
