Didier Dagueneau Pouilly Fume Pur Sang 2019
|France, Loire Valley, Pouilly-Fume
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.
