Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For De Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume 2018
Grapes are destemmed before pressing, which is completely gravity-fed, a process which avoids any harshness or stalkiness. This process results in 80% free-run juice. Thermo-controlled fermentation at 60°F in stainless steel tanks for six to eight weeks, before maturing from three to six months on natural lees, with regular stirring. The wine is blended seven to eight months after harvesting and stored in glass-tiled tanks. No wood is ever used in the vinification process in order to preserve the freshness and full flavor of the Sauvignon Blanc grape.
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).
