About:  Baron de L Pouilly Fume is de Ladoucette’s Grande Cuvee and is considered by many to be, quite simply, one of the best Pouilly Fumé the Loire has to offer.

The vineyards of de Ladoucette have been owned by the Comte Lafond and de Ladoucette families since 1787 when Comte Lafond purchased the estate from the illegitimate daughter of the French king, Louis XV. The estate is currently owned by Baron Patrick de Ladoucette, a descendant of the Comte Lafond.

Baron de L Pouilly Fume is 100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced from the best of Ladoucette’s vineyards. The vines have an average age of 40 years old and are considered to be some of the finest that in the region. Grapes are harvested by hand, so they are in optimum condition and freshness when they reach the winery at Chateau du Nozet, 6 minutes from the vineyards.

Baron de L Pouilly Fume is made from only the highest quality free-run juice, whereby only the juice released by the weight of the grapes themselves is used.  Grapes from each vineyard are vinified separately and the wine is left to mature on the lees for 3 to 6 months. The parcels are then blended to make the final assemblage and the wine is then left to rest on the lee, with lees stirring, in glass tiled vats for eight to ten months. The wine is then bottled after 2 years in the cellar of the Chateau.

Baron de L Pouilly Fumecan gracefully age for 5 to 10 years and longer which is unusual for a Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Notes:  On the nose there are straw, gooseberry and elegant flint notes that continue on the palate with a lively and stylish finish where a fleur de sel note lingers. Beautiful.
