One of the most famous and long-lived cellars of the entire Burgundy is in the hands of the Ladoucette family since the eighteenth century, from 1787 exactly, the year in which the then owners, the Comte Lafond family, bought the land from the illegitimate daughter of the French king Louis XV .
Over the years, the constant work of the family has transformed the wines of Pouilly-Fumé into products of excellent quality, making them very capable of rivaling high heads with all the remaining best whites in the world. In 1972, the Baron de Ladoucette inherited the original land and extended it by buying plots in the Sancerre, Pouilly-Fuissé, Chablis, Champagne, Vouvray and Chinon regions, thus extending the family's centuries-old wine-making business. .
Today the maison de Ladoucette is able to perfectly match technological innovation and winemaking tradition, quality and great numbers, aiming to maintain the link with the territory and its microclimate, and creating top-of-the-range products in every area. In the vineyard, every precaution and every agronomic practice are aimed at maintaining the balance of the environment and the ecosystem unaltered, and the plants are reared with care and with meticulous care to say the least. In the winery, tradition has it that each plot and each single cru are vinified separately, so as to enhance and enhance the intrinsic characteristics of the fruit and the peculiarities deriving from the composition of the soil: from de-stemming to crushing, from fermentation at controlled temperatures until aging. , each step is strictly supervised and managed so as to work the grapes keeping them distinct according to the parcel of origin.
From all this come to life labels to say the least extraordinary, among which we can mention one to recall them all, remembering the Pouilly-Fumé "Baron del L", wine that is produced only in the best vintages and that, with its extreme elegance and with its exceptional finesse, is currently unanimously and unequivocally recognized not only as one of the best French Sauvignon, but in general as one of the best Sauvignon in the world.
