From the importer: One of France’s great, iconic estates, making singular, age-worthy Sauvignon Blancs from the appellation of Pouilly-Fumé. Didier Dagueneau was one of the first in the region to experiment with single-parcel wines, starting with “En Chailloux” in 1982, and later “Pur Sang” in 1988. Vines are farmed meticulously, with an average of one full time worker per hectare, which is unheard of except at top domaines like Bize-Leroy. The cellar is pristine, very cold, and home to many cutting edge experiments like the rare hermetically-sealed glass “wine globe”. Today, the domaine is run by fifth generation Louis-Benjamin Dagueneau, whose curiosity and drive have further solidified the domain's place in the upper echelon of the wine world. Produced primarily from a vineyard north of Saint Andelain called La Folie. Occasionally, some smaller plots on the Saint Andelain hill make it into this cuvee. The soil here is deeper clay with some chalky limestone. There is virtually no silex in the soil. Aged mostly in 450 and 600 liter barrels, as well as some of Dagueneau's famous cigar barrels. Designed by the late Didier, these barrels are 350 liters and aggressively elongated.
