The Region

Baron Patrick de Ladoucette was the first person to introduce Pouilly-Fumé to the American market.

All the varying soil types are vinified separately to preserve their distinctive qualities: Limestone produces a very perfumed wine which is delicate in style; Flint produces wine with more depth and mineral character; Clay, located in the highest slopes, makes a firm wine with rustic characteristics.
