Purchased by the Comte Lafond, an ancestor of the current owner, Baron Patrick de Ladoucette, Château du Nozet and its surrounding vineyards have a reputation for producing the finest Pouilly-Fumé. The vineyards are in Pouilly-Fumé Contrôlée, which includes Pouilly-Sur-Loire, Saint-Andelin and Tracy at the eastern end of the Loire Valley (including the vineyard of the Château du Nozet estate). Both clay and limestone (Kimmeridgian marnes on fossilized limestone) influence the delicate characteristics in Ladoucette Pouilly-Fume.
Pale golden-green in color. The nose develops a natural range of subtle floral and earthy green plant aromas such as acacia, ferns, peppermint and white nettles. Notes of stony minerals and lemon give the wine a beautiful structure balanced by a fruity roundness, with a finish marked by hints of citrus fruits.
