Pouilly Fumé Blanc Fumé de Pouilly Dagueneau Information
About the domain
Domaine Didier Dagueneau was founded in 1982, and is renowned internationally for its fantastic Sauvignon wines. Yet the estate had a difficult start, as the public didn't appreciate the owner's non-traditional wine-making methods, which were largely based on intuition. But he proved himself determined, and ultimately won over the hearts of wine enthusiasts and professionals by demonstrating the value in his practices. The secret of this success lies in an incredibly aware understanding of how humans operate, as well as his ability to 'listen' to the wine throughout the vinification and ageing processes. Sustainable practices in caring for the vines, the practice of debudding to better control yields, harvests entirely carried out by hand and strict sorting methods of the grapes - these are all factors that have widely contributed to the domaine's success, with the support of a first-class technical team. In the winery, the wines are produced using yeasts selected from the estate's own vineyards, with a long élevage on the lees, supplemented by precise large-volume maturation in wooden barrels. Since the accidental death of Didier Dagueneau in 2008, his son Benjamin has taken over with great flair. In January 2016, Louis-Benjamin Dagueneau was even voted "Winemaker of the Year" by La Revue du Vin de France.
About the cuvée
The cuvée Blanc Fumé de Pouilly is a blend of 4 plots; it is an accessible wine from its youth. When tasting, the nose offers aromas of citrus, white flowers and mineral notes. On the palate, vivacity dominates and, as a whole, it is well balanced, taut, with a fine substance and a long finish…really mouthwatering. A wine with great ageing potential.
