2018 Domaine Didier Dagueneau Blanc Fume de Pouilly (750ml) Pre-Arrival15 0 0 0
Dagueneau is one of France's great, iconic estates making singluar, age-worthy Sauvignon Blancs from the appellation of Pouilly-Fumé. Vines are farmed meticulously with an average of one full-time worker per hectare - unheard of except at top domaines like Bize-Leroy in Burgundy. 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.
The Blanc Fume de Pouilly is a blend from several vineyards of younger vines that is barrel-fermented and aged half in stainless steel and half in large, neutral barrels. This wine Includes fruit from Pur Sang, Buisson Renard and Silex cuvées.
