We are in Sancerre along the winding course of the Loire, cradle of Sauvignon Blanc, a real prince vine that, in these soils rich in fossils and silica, gives life to refined wines and fine workmanship, more full-bodied and ready, even if less long-lived, of its older Pouilly brothers and characterized by intense mineral notes of flint and elegant flavor. Count Lafond, originally from Burgundy and the ancestor of Patrick Baron de Ladoucette, was among the first to purchase the vineyards of the Loire Valley in the 18th century, investing in 35 hectares of land. Since then, to this day, the Domaine Comte Lafond has continued to grow and produce great Sancerre, keeping the wine traditions and style of the maison firm, always respecting the production philosophy: giving life to a mineral and powerful Sauvignon, with an elegant taste and harmonious.
Of a beautiful straw-yellow color with greenish reflections, it releases delicately mineral flint and granite minerals to the nose, followed by hints of citrus and lily of the valley, together with vegetal hints of tomato leaf and fruity notes of white peach. In the mouth it turns out fine and elegant in the beautiful floral references, pleasant thanks to the acid-savory verve and long in a citrine finish reminiscent of lime and cedar.
Refined aperitif, it goes perfectly with a nettle risotto or with shrimp and courgette noodles, with an omelette with asparagus and goat cheese.
