2019 Domaine Didier Dagueneau Pouilly Fume Blanc Fumé
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 this is then distributed among all the top top wine merchants all over the world. This is already the situation with the Blanc Fumé de Pouilly, but even more extreme with the Buisson Renard and Silex by Didier Dagueneau
There is like nothing mundane about the 'basic' Dagueneau cuvée, the Vineyard of the Blanc Fume de Pouilly. This is the only cuvée where the vineyard is located on two soil types - Marne chalk and silex. The Fume Blanc is a rare expression of minerality and fruit in combination with maturity. One immediately recognizes the signature of this great Pouilly Fumé with notes of citrus on the nose and deep intensity on the palate. The wine has a velvety mouthfeel and a great crispy full aftertaste. These wines only get more beautiful with age.
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.
