Pale golden-green in color. The nose develops a natural range of subtle floral and earthy green plant aromas such acacia, ferns, peppermint and white nettles. Notes of stony minerals and lemon give the wine a beautiful structure balanced by a fruity roundness, with a finish marked by hints of citrus fruits.

The largest and most famous Pouilly-Fumé vineyards have been in the hands of the Comte Lafond and Ladoucette families since 1787 when the Comte Lafond purchased the estate from the illegitimate daughter of the French king, Louis XV. 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 worlds great white wines.

This Pouilly-Fumé is elegant and classic in style sourced from the 165 acres of estate vines. No plot lies more than six minutes from the winery so the grapes are always picked and pressed at optimum quality.

A unique feature of the wines of de Ladoucette is that unlike the majority of wineries in the world they only use free run juice. This juice is squeezed from the grapes by gravity alone, no pressure is needed, just the sheer weight of the grapes. This process avoids any harshness or stalkiness that can come when skins and pips are crushed during normal pressing methods.

After blending the wine is stored in glass vats and bottled just prior to shipment to retain all the freshness of the herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc. The result is the essence of the finest quality Pouilly Fumé.
