Baron de L, the Maison de Ladoucette top wine, is undoubtedly a wine that warms the heart of the most nostalgic italian drinkers. Imported in Italy by Sagna from immemorial times, this wine has joined the first curious lovers of French white wines, having been among one of the first to be marketed in Italy. The winery belongs to the Comtes Lafond family who bought in 1787, in Pouilly sul Loire, the land previously owned by King Louis XV illegitimate daughter. The wine, produced exclusively in the great vintages, is an assemblage of the best Sauvignon of the estate, coming from the oldest vines, on the Loire rive droite.
The grapes, pressed very gently, undergo a fermentation at controlled temperature, in steel tanks, and then mature, for 8-10 months, in glass tanks (inert material that does not add or subtract anything from the freshness of the fruit) before being bottled and resting for long years in the cellar.
This golden yellow with green reflections 2005 vintage smells of white flowers and vegetal hints, aromas of white peach, pear, slight iodine and flint, tropical fruit and graphite. The mouthfeel is broad and persistent with a great freshness and a savory component to slim the sip, important despite the low alcohol content. The closure is on notes of almond and white pepper.
