In a nutshell:
A world class Loire Sauvignon Blanc only made in the best years.
The most famous Pouilly Fume vineyards have been in the hands of the Comte Lafond and Ladoucette families since 1787 and this is the 'icon' wine of the estate. This Grande Cuvee is only made in the best years and from the first pressing of the estate's grapes matured on its lees for up to 6 months and the result is consistently one of the world's great Sauvignon Blancs. Expressive on the nose and crisp and refined on the palate. Plenty of citrus fruits with taught minerality and mouth-watering acidity, but done with great finesse, and a finish that keeps on going. This wine can age for decades.
When to drink:
Drink young with seafood, the older and more complex try with white meats and richer dishes.
