France - Loire - Pouilly- Fume
White - Vintage: 2017 - Size: 750 ml.
Purchased by the Comte Lafond, an ancestor of the current owner, Baron Patrick de Ladoucette, Château du Nozet and its surrounding vineyards have a reputation for producing the finest Pouilly-Fumé. The vineyards are in Pouilly-Fumé Contrôlée, which includes Pouilly-sur-Loire, Saint-Andelain, and Tracy-sur-Loire at the eastern end of the Loire Valley (including the vineyard of the Château du Nozet estate). Both clay and limestone influence the delicate characteristics in Ladoucette Baron de L Pouilly-Fumé. This Grande Cuvée of Pouilly Fumé is produced exclusively in the best years and from the first pressing of the estate’s grapes.
“A harmonious white, with green plum, lime zest and lemon pith flavors, accented by a gooseberry note that adds another layer. Silky in texture, fueled by a minerally backbone and electric acidity. Not a blockbuster style, but shows quality, complexity and persistence. Best from 2022 through 2029.”
