Buy de Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume
Pale golden-green color. Considerable intensity on the nose. . It has an exceptional full range of floral, exotic and citrus fruit aromas such as white blossoms, hawthorn, white nettles and grapefruit. These notes are enhanced and strengthened by the moneral note of gunflint. The flavor is pleasant and lively, tempered by a fruity roundness with notes ofpear, green apples and citrus fruits.
Special BAYWAY100 points - Sourced from their Chateau du Nozet and in three famous adjacent communes (Pouilly, St Andelain and Tracy); and like all of Ladoucette’s wines, matured entirely in tank, their flagship 2009 Pouilly-Fume is very obviously a product of its ripe vintage. Juicy grapefruit takes on an aura of its candied rind; pineapple near the core bites, but is mingled with a hint of caramel; and there is a subtle sense of creaminess against which the stony mineral cast and fruit skin tartness stand out in stark relief. The bitter side of green herbs and citrus zest extends the finish, albeit in a rather opaque and not especially juicy or refreshing manner. This is impressive in its big-boned (albeit alcoholically moderate) manner. It might well “live” for the better part of a decade – as have so many of its predecessors, including those from unusually ripe vintages – but I do not envision time being on its side and would be inclined to polish off bottles over the next 2-3 years. ”
