Domaine de Ladoucette Pouilly Fume, 2017
The largest and most famous Pouilly-Fume vineyards have been in the hands of the Comte Lafond and Ladoucette families since 1787. Pale golden-green colour. Considerable intensity on the nose. It has an exceptional full range of floral, exotic and citrus fruit aromas such as white blossoms, hawthorn, broom and white nettles and grapefruit. These notes are enhanced and strengthened by the mineral note of gunflint (flint stone heated by the sun). The flavour is pleasant and lively, tempered by a fruity roundness with notes of pear, green apples and citrus fruits, which boost the mineral and stony hardness of gunflint. The finish brings to mind a pleasant lemony freshness.
