"What I love most about the 2019 Pur Sang is its focus and precision; the compact, light bodied core carries masses of fragrance across the palate and beyond on the long finish. There's clarity and freshness, with a thread of acidity and minerality pulling the wine through like a needle and thread. It is starting to show the very first hints of time in bottle with a hint of almond alongside the ripe melon notes and nettle tea character. Impressive stuff from this three-hectare parcel in the village of Saint Laurent l'Abbaye, about 5km northeast of the Dagueneau domaine." 

About the Wine: 

"'Pur Sang' is French for 'thoroughbred', and Dagueneau was always annoyed by journalists who would always repeat the fact that he uses a horse to till some of vineyards. Assemblage of different parcels of 50-year-old vines, entirely from the butte and only from those parcels with high levels of silex. Vinified and aged in new oak "cigar-shaped" barrels built to domaine's specifications. Rich and powerful with great age-worthiness. One of Dagueneau's top cuvées.  A robust, richly textured Sauvignon Blanc from one of the top domaines in the Loire Valley. This is a serious, ageworthy white wine."

From the Importer: 

"The wines at Domaine Didier Dagueneau deserve their rightful place among the great 'singular' wines of the world. Eric Asimov, in his obituary of the late Didier Dagueaneau in the The New York Times, seemed to sum it up well: 'Tasting a Dagueneau wine for the first time was a revelation. His Sauvignon Blancs had an unexpected purity and clarity to them. The flavors were intense but nuanced. It wasn’t the fruit that was piercing, as in so many Sauvignon Blancs, but the freshness and the focus. As powerful a personality as he was, his wines did not exalt the stature of the winemaker so much as the beauty of the terroir.'"
