    “Since the late 18th Century, the family of Comte Lafond has owned the largest and most famous vineyards in the Pouilly region, known as the Château du Nozet. This 165 hectare estate produces 10% of the entire Pouilly Fumé appellation.

    This Pouilly-Fumé is elegant and classic in style sourced from the 165 acres of estate vines. No plot lies more than six minutes from the winery so the grapes are always picked and pressed at optimum quality.

    Description

    CELLAR INFORMATION A long, cool fermentation follows in stainless steel to
    preserve freshness and aroma. Keeping the wine in contact with its
    lees for nine months, combined with stirring the wine each month
    for a short period, imparts great flavour and body into the wine, and
    no oak aging is needed at any stage.
    After blending the wine is stored in glass vats and bottled just prior
    to shipment to retain all the freshness of the herbaceous Sauvignon
    Blanc. The result is the essence of the finest quality Pouilly Fumé. VINEYARD INFORMATION 100% Sauvignon Blanc harvested from 25-35 year old vines,
    destemmed and deleafed, then pressed by three gentle presses,
    designed to give 80% ‘free run juice’ (most presses only allow 40% to
    run off).
    A unique feature of the wines of de Ladoucette is that unlike the
    majority of wineries in the world they only use free run juice. This
    juice is squeezed from the grapes by gravity alone, no pressure is
    needed, just the sheer weight of the grapes. This process avoids any
    harshness or stalkiness that can come when skins and pips are
    crushed during normal pressing methods.
