Albert Pic was purchased by the Ladoucette family in 1985, led by Baron Patrick Ladoucette. Having taken over his family’s wine operations in 1972 at the young age of twenty, Baron de Ladoucette’s energy and vision have helped to elevate the quality and prestige of Pouilly-Fumé, Sancerre, and Vouvray, worldwide. The company owns over 200 acres of prime vineyards in these appellations and others, in addition to contracting fruit from growers that meet the Baron’s strict criterions.
The Baron’s distinctive portfolio is based on the de Ladoucette winemaking style that focuses on presenting the essence of the grape variety and the vineyard. The ultimate goal, according to Baron Patrick de Ladoucette, “is to produce the finest wines that truly reflect the unique terroir of these regions.”
