This is one of the top "go to" wines for Pouilly-Fumé. The estate's name is synonymous with style and quality. This is one heck of an entry level for Poully-Fumé. Highly recommended by us.

"Pouilly-Fumé is always one of my top five choices when I am on the hunt for Sauvignon Blanc. The 2018 de Ladoucette is one of the best examples of this grape variety I have tasted this year. TASTING NOTES: This wine fills the palate and stays long in the finish. Its aromas and flavors of dried herbs and ripe fruits as well as its elevation on the palate should pair it superbly with a piping bowl of freshly-steamed clams and mussels."

Clay and limestone soil influence the delicately salty nature of this Sauvignon Blanc. Matured for three to six months on natural lees, the wine is blended about eight months after harvesting and stored in glass-tiled tanks. Exotic notes of kiwi match with salted pear. Richness and supercharged acidity are perked up by an underlying chalkiness, while sweet tangerine and lychee come through with elegance.
Purchased by the Comte Lafond, 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.
