Tasting notes: The Pur Sang Cuvee evokes white fruits, lime, melon, lily of the valley and chalk. The nose reveals a palpable density and a completely seductive chalky aspect. The palate has a tangy and smoky personality, with an iodized return subtly accompanied by ageing in oak. The wine offers persistent, diverse and subtle mineral suggestions throughout the tasting, ending with a great length and balance that shows how the winemaking is mastered to perfection.
About the winery: Didier Dagueneau is the fourth-generation of winemaker in the small village of St. Andelain in Loire-Valley. He created a cult following for his Sauvignon Blanc in the Pouilly-Fume appellation. In 2008, his children took over the 11 hectares vineyard. His son, Benjamin, oversees the winemaking and his daughter, Charlotte, takes care of the running of the business. The Dagueneau family makes limited quantities of wine from their small plots of land, with a reputation of making some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world.
