Domaines de Ladoucette Baron de L 2012 White Wine 75cl

+
-

Domaines de Ladoucette Baron de L is from the largest and most famous Pouilly-Fume vineyards that have been in the hands of the Comte Lafond and Ladoucette families since 1787. This Grande Cuvee of the Pouilly-Fume is produced exclusively in the best years and from the first pressing of the estate's grapes. Matured on the lees for up to 6 months. 

This wine is made entirely from free-run juice, the highest possible grade. It is made in a similar way to Champagne Cuvee where the wines from the finest Grand Cru vineyards are vinified separately, then skillfully blended together. The wines are stored on their lees to extract maximum flavour, and stirred on occasion to accentuate this process.

The vines are, on average, forty years old and yield barely enough for 8,000 cases each vintage. Picking is always by hand so that the fruit remains undamaged. Lying at the heart of the vineyards, the winery at the Chateau du Nozet always receives fruit at optimum freshness, as no parcel of land lies more than six minutes away.
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. The length is extraordinary and makes Baron de L one of the finest expressions Sauvignon Blanc.
A perfect match for meat dishes such as pork, veal or roasted chicken with garlic and herbs.

Baron Patrick de Ladoucette, the great-grandson of Les Comtes Lafond has continued their tradition of high quality and produces the great white wines of Ladoucette. Baron Patrick created a rare cuvee, Baron de L, which truly reflects the terroir and is only produced in exceptional vintages. The Baron de L is recognised as one of the greatest Sauvignon wines of the world due to its extraordinary vintages.
