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).

Pouilly-Fumé is always one of my top five choices when I am on the hunt for Sauvignon Blanc. The 2018 de Ladoucette is one of the best examples of this grape variety I have tasted this year. This wine fills the palate and stays long in the finish. Its aromas and flavors of dried herbs and ripe fruits as well as its elevation on the palate should pair it superbly with a piping bowl of freshly-steamed clams and mussels.
