STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Historically, the Loire was the playground of France’s nobility. While that era has long gone, it could be said that the producers of Domaine de Ladoucette are a modern day version of the aristocracy. With holdings in Sancerre, Pouilly-Fume, Chinon and Vouvray, few can match their reach and expertise. This Cuvée is ready to drink now, but atypically for the region, is also built with age in mind. This sets it apart from many of its peers. Sancerre continues to be a global reference point for old world Sauvignon Blanc and few know it better than this Domaine.
