2018 Baron de Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume, Loire, France (750ml)
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. - Tasting Panel 93 pts
The delicate and complex olfactory expression opens on aromas which remind of white flower, exotic fruits. There is a very beautiful complexity for a vintage where the end-of-season’s sun brought a lot to the aromas. Excellent complexity that translates into great and elegant richness. Nice attack, straight and bright, it takes place with elegance on fruity notes associated with a dense structure and a beautiful acidity which brings a great length in the end of the mouth. There are aromas of exotic fruits (litchi, mango).
