Ladoucette Les Deux Tours Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Overview

Les Deux Tours is produced by Baron Patrick de Ladoucette in the Loire Valley on soils that are mainly limestone with some parcels of flint clay. Patrick is sometimes referred to as "The King of the Loire Valley" for his contribution to the worldwide recognition and acclaim of this appellation. Les Deux Tours wines originate from a terroir that is known as the “Valley of the Kings,” which is located along the Loire River, the longest waterway in France.

Winemaking

Fermentation at a low controlled temperature and matured on fine lees in stainless steel vats for six months.

Tasting Notes

Intense floral notes reminiscent of roses and broom. On the nose, one finds notes of yellow fruit (pears) and citrus fruit (lime and grapefruit). In the mouth, a beautiful round attack with the perfect balance between vivacity and suppleness. The finish is very aromatic full of floral notes. Best enjoyed within two years of release.
