2018 Domaine Didier Dagueneau Sancerre Mont Damne Chavignol
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 top wine merchants all over the world. The Silex is the most special version.
The Mont Damne is the Top Sancerre of van Dagueneau and is super scarce and an extraordinary personality. In the nose, the wine has an exuberant, aromatic appearance of flowers and herbs. There is nutty richness and piquancy coupled with a Chablis-esque feel and perfectly complemented by a silky texture. But at the same time the wine is juicy, fresh with the typical mineral/lime notes and citrus zest refreshment, levity and lively interaction with notes of chalk, smoke and citrus zest. Advice is to put this wine away for a while and to uncork the bottle from 2021/2022 (or try a sip with the Coravin and then put it away again)
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.
