COMTE LAFOND GRANDE CUVEE SANCERRE 2018

Baron Patrick de Ladoucette produces this Sauvignon Blanc from the Sancerre Controlled Appellation area. In addition to using grapes from his Sancerre vineyard, Ladoucette buys fruit from top growers.

Winemaking:
100% stainless-steel fermentation, temperature controlled. Bottled from tank after several months on the lees.

Tasting Notes:
A racy, aggressive Sauvignon nose of chalk and flint; round in the mouth with herbal notes and very fresh.

Serving:
This wine pairs well with a hard goat cheese such as Capricious or Chevre Colby.

Winemaker Notes:

Beautiful crystalline dress, pale gold. The olfactory expression opens immediately on a succession of shades that are constantly renewed. First citrus fruits (orange peel and lemon), then summer fruits (white peach and pear) finally honey notes on a subtle background of peppermint... an excellent complexity that translates richness and elegance. The lively and very frank attack precedes the acidulous roundness of the summer fruits expressed by the nose which are mingled with the refreshing flavors of exotic fruits (lychee, mango). Then, in delicate harmony, the fat and smells of fresh almond and pear are revealed. The finish, based on a stony minerality, is prolonged on notes of very ripe lemon.
Food Pairing: This wine pairs beautifully with shellfish, seafood and goat cheeses.

Critical Acclaim:

90 points - Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
"COMMENTARY: In my close-knit wine group, the word, "Sancerre," always gets a smile. The 2018 Ladoucette Comte Lafond brought pleasing thoughts to my palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine is Sancerre a point. Its aromas and flavors of dried earth and lively mineral notes should be perfect with a bowl of clams and linguine."
