The Pur Sang is one of the star cuveés in the Dagueneau line up.
This vineyard, La Folie, was thought to be a folly of Didier Dagueneau's when he first purchased the property over thirty years ago. No vines, just large boulders covered the slope five kilometres north of Saint-Andélain.
The man's insticts once again proved to be otherworldly. The combination of flint and clay in the soils coupled with the incredible high-density plantings that Dagueneau set in place has seen this special site since become renowned as once of the greatest vineyards in all of the Pouilly Fume designation.
This epitomises the barrel-fermented Sauvignon style. Pur Sang is opulent, focused and deeply concentrated and will need time in the cellar to fully reveal all of its beauty.
