Ladoucette Baron de L Pouilly Fume

£61.00£366.00

The Baron de L is recognised as one of the greatest Sauvignon wines of the world due to its extraordinary finesse.
Since the late 18th Century, the family of Comte Lafond has owned the largest and most famous vineyards in the Pouilly region, known as the Château du Nozet. This 165 hectare estate produces 10% of the entire Pouilly Fumé appellation.
In 1972 Baron Patrick de Ladoucette took over, concentrating his efforts on wine production, with an emphasis on the importance and the diversity of his estate vineyards. De Ladoucette are acclaimed for producing some of the world’s finest Sauvignon Blancs, including the top cuvée Baron de L, made from the finest parcels on the estate. It is only produced in exceptional years and is one of the few Sauvignons renowned for its ability to age. A £3 million investment was made to improve and modernise the winery at Château du Nozet, to further enhance the unique quality, individual style and consistency of their signature wine; de Ladoucette Pouilly-Fumé. Wines from de Ladoucette are regarded as some of the finest examples of France’s key wine producing regions, with a reputation for elegance, complexity and quality.

Ladoucette Baron de L Pouilly Fume is made in a similar way to a champagne Cuvee where the grapes are selected from only the finest Grand Cru vineyards in best years and the wines vinified separately (from the first pressing only) then skillfully blended together.

Tasting Notes…

Ladoucette Baron de L Pouilly Fume is made in a similar way to a champagne Cuvee where the grapes are selected from only the finest Grand Cru vineyards in best years and the wines vinified separately (from the first pressing only) then skillfully blended together.

On the nose it is a harmonious blend of strength and freshness with orange peel, grapefruit, beeswax and floral hints. On the palate the fruit is full and elegant showing a mineral complexity combined with herbaceous fruit and zesty acidity; delicious ripe pear flavours overlay a firm gooseberry structure.The length is extraordinary and makes Baron de L one of the finest expressions of Loire Sauvignon Blanc. It has the potential to age for ten years or more
