Ladoucette Les Deux Tours Sauvignon Blanc 2017

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

Pale green gold in color, Les Deux Tours 2017 has a very fine nose with a beautiful expression of sauvignon blanc, lemon notes, flesh of white fruits, and some fine aniseed nuances. In the mouth, a nice, supple and fruity attack, with good vivacity and a fruit-forward aromatic finish.
