2018 Domaine Didier Dagueneau Blanc Fume de Pouilly Pur Sang Magnum
Didier Dagueneau is a world-famous French winemaker who left his mark on Pouilly-Fumé. He died 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-Fumés from 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 of Pouilly Fumé. We can only obtain a few bottles of this. This is for the simple reason that only a very limited number of bottles are produced and this is then distributed to all the top wine merchants around 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 were 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 extremely strictly. This wine is 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 fermented in oak barrels, something that is very unusual for Pouilly-Fumé. The grapes are picked by hand and very selectively. The wine cellar is constructed in such a way that pump systems are unnecessary. The specially crafted elongated barrels are branded 'DSLS'. 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 is mainly derived from Sauvignon fruit from a relatively clay-rich terroir. This Blanc Fume de Pouilly smells extremely exciting. There are so many impressions. From elderflower, white peach, lime to grapefruit and cassis. On the palate, 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 hidden notes, which are worth looking for to estimate how the wine will develop in subsequent years.

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.
