Didier Dagueneau is world-renowned French winemaker who left his mark on the Pouilly-Fumé. He passed away in 2008, but his son Benjamin, who had been in the company with his father for years, took over the company with the same passion and talent. Every wine lover knows the beautiful Pouilly-Fumé's of Domaine Dagueneau. They are among the best and most sought after Sauvignon Blanc wines and are on the menu of every serious star restaurant. The rolls royce under the Pouilly Fumé. We can only get a few bottles of this. This is for the simple reason that only a very limited number of bottles are produced and then distributed among all the top wine merchants all over the world.

This Pur Sang is an icon in the wine world! The fermentation takes place in wooden barrels of 450 and 600 liters, and the cigar barriques designed by Didier himself at the time. The grapes come from a vineyard in the north of St. Andelain, called "La Folie". The entire harvest is done manually and is selected very strictly. This wine is in between the En Chailloux (his most soft and friendly wines) and Cuvée Silex (his most structured wines).

Didier, the illustrious father of Louis Benjamin, already had the must of the Sauvignon grapes ferment in oak barrels, something very unusual for Pouilly-Fumé. The grapes are picked by hand and very selectively. The wine cellar is constructed in such a way that pumping systems are unnecessary. 'DSLS' is branded on the specially manufactured elongated barrels. This would stand for 'Dieu seul le sait' (only God knows the secret). Despite the high acidity of the wine, malolactic fermentation is never used. Pur Sang, means thoroughbred or purebred. The wine mainly comes from sauvignon fruit of a relatively clay-rich terroir. This Blanc Fume de Pouilly smells very exciting. There are so many impressions. From elderflower, white peach, lime to grapefruit and cassis. In the mouth, the structure can almost be confused with a grandiose Riesling: lush, lively, rich in minerals, stony and salty aspects. This concerns both accessible nuances and still hidden notes, which are worth looking for to estimate how the wine will develop in the following years.

Vineyard for 2018 Domaine Didier Dagueneau Blanc Fume de Pouilly Pur Sang

Domaine Didier Dagueneau is located in Saint-Andelain which falls under the Pouilly-Fumé (dry white wine type with AOC classification). The area is characterized by the mainly flint clay soil, partly responsible for the characteristic taste of the wines from this area.

Since the death of the eponymous owner Didier Dagueneau in 2008, the winery has been run by Benjamin Dagueneau. His father Didier was known in the wine world for his great wines. His son Benjamin is at least as talented and continues to work passionately in the way his father did. Of course you can taste that in the fantastic wines that this winery produces. The real wine lovers certainly know the beautiful Pouilly-Fumés of Domaine Dagueneau. They are among the most sought after and the best Sauvignon Blanc wines and are on the menu of renowned restaurants.
