“Patrick de Ladoucette sources the grapes for this bottling from the villages of Bué, Chadoux, Chavignol and Verdigny, with the vineyards ranging from twenty-five to thirty-five years of age. It is fermented and raised entirely in stainless steel. The 2018 Comte Lafond Sancerre is a very refined and fairly powerful example of the vintage, offering up a complex bouquet of gooseberry, lime zest, a touch of clementine, complex limestone soil tones, fresh-cut grass and a topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with superb acids and grip, fine backend mineral drive and a long, complex and very well-balanced finish. This is a really fine bottle of Sancerre that should age very gracefully. 2020-2030+.”
