Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume 2002
The Comte Lafond bought the Chateau de Nozet estate in 1787 from the illegitimate daughter of King Louis XV and it has been owned and run by his descendant Baron Patrick de Ladoucette since 1972. He also owns other Loire and Chablis wine estates. It consists of 65 acres and uses both estate and purchased grapes to make Pouilly Fume de Ladoucette wine.
Tasted September 2008: Unquestioanbly, this is the best Pouilly-Fumé on the market. This bottle was virtually perfect. After 6 years in the cellar, the wine had a soft yellow hue, a magnificent bouquet with the merest hint of flint, but overall soft and refined, like a great Chablis. In the mouth perfect balance, completely dry, yet rounded and soft, with much character and finesse. Long aftertaste. A noble, very memorable wine, a great Pouilly-Fumé -- you could have none better. Drink now and through 2009.
External Reviews for Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume
Wine Spectator ReviewRated 92Subtle but very complex, with notes of lanolin, lemon curd, white asparagus, thyme and mineral. The long, stony finish is creamy in texture, but also racy and fresh. Really lingers nicely. Drink now.

This prestige cuvee is considered a Loire Valley legend. Its rich texture and perfect blend of fruit and elegance make this one of France's most sought-after white wines.No oak involved! Pure Sauvignon Blanc which can only be compared in finesse and texture to a world class White Burgundy at twice the price. A very full, pretty nose and a silkiness on the palate that must be experienced to be believed.
