2005 Didier Dagueneau "Pur Sang" Pouilly-Fumé

SKU #1029794 97 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Shows a humus hint in the aroma, with lots of fresh herb, lemon peel, grapefruit, macadamia nut and floral notes. Long and very stony on the finish, with herb and fleur de sel notes that refuse to quit. Hangs together perfectly, leaving a mouthwatering impression. *#21 on the Top 100 Wines of 2007* (JM) Inner quote mark (9/2007)

Outer quote mark The 2005 Blanc Fume de Pouilly Pur Sang smells alluringly of lime, ripe honeydew melon, and lily-of-the-valley. Palpably dense and chalky, it is nevertheless far more generous today than Dageuneau’s “Renard” bottling, offering a Margarita-like salt-tinged lime and lusciously ripe melon fruit personality underlain by persistent, diverse, and subtle mineral suggestions, and finishing with a length and poise that do not in any obvious way betray Dagueneau’s use of new wood. (DS) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

K&L Notes

Arguably Dagueneau's most popular cuvee, the Pur Sang is produced primarily from a vineyard north of Saint Andelain called La Folie. The soil here is deeper clay with some chalky limestone, with virtually no silex. The vineyard is gently sloped and has perfect exposure. Some smaller plots on the Saint Andelain hill occasionally make it into this cuvee. Barrel fermented and aged mostly in 450 and 600 liter barrels, some of Dagueneau's famous cigar barrels are used as well.
