Ladoucette Baron de L Pouilly Fume 2014
This wine has a pale, brilliant and crystalline gold color with golden highlights. An olfactory expression opening onto the notes of white flowers and exotic fruit but also white fruit (vines peaches). Breathing reveals the fruity aromas of peaches, apricots and the final touch has a complex minerality. On the palate, the attack is frank with a suave roundness which is very seductive enveloped in a vivacity which distinguishes this attack. This wine has a very structured equilibrium with a lovely fattiness in the middle of the palate which prolongs itself agreeably with the favors of white peaches, mango and notes of apricot. The aromatic persistent is particularly intense; the mineral notes at the end of the palate impose themselves with a beautiful length.
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.
