Pur Sang is French for thoroughbred and is a joke that reflects Dagueneau's annoyance at repeated references to the fact (by journalists) that he uses a horse to till some of vineyards. This is produced primarily from a vineyard north of Saint Andelain called La Folie. The soil here is deep clay with some limestone. The vineyard is gently sloped and has perfect south/southeast exposure. Some smaller parcels on the Saint Andelain Hill occasionally also make it into this Cuvée. Barrel fermented and aged. This is always a rich and powerful Cuvée, enormously textural and complex. It is a wine that can live and live.

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.
