Wine Spectator 87 points - Has a creamy edge, with a hint of honeysuckle guiding the core of lemon shortbread, white peach and marjoram notes. Gentle finish. Pretty, though a touch shy on zip. Drink now. 100 cases imported.-JM  (Jun 15 2015)

Vinous 91 points - Pale yellow. Vibrant aromas of lime zest, wet stone and white pepper. The first impression on the palate is that of nervous energy, with fine precision to the citrus and dusty mineral flavors. Taut in a classic Sancerre style, but with an inner balance that provides this sauvignon blanc with a certain distinction. Lively citrus flavors linger on the nicely focused, slightly edgy finish.  (Sep 2014)

The largest and most famous Pouilly-Fume vineyards have been in the hands of the Comte Lafond and Ladoucette families since 1787 when the Comte Lafond purchased the estate from the illegitimate daughter of the French king, Louis XV. The estate is now owned by Baron Patrick de Ladoucette, a descendant of the Comte Lafond, and Pouilly Fume has earned a reputation as one of the world’s great white wines. After taking over Ladoucette in 1972, the Baron extended his activities to Sancerre, Chablis, Vouvray and Chinon. Today, the Baron produces outstanding Loire Valley wines under the de Ladoucette, Marc Bredif, La Poussie, Regnard and Baron Patrick labels. Many of the wines, including the Pouilly Fume de Ladoucette, Baron de L and Comte Lafond, are considered to be the finest examples of their type.
