About this product

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.

Cuvée Pur Sang shines thanks to its power, richness, vivacity, its fine airy substance, its crunchy fruit and amazing length. This wine with great ageing potential requires at least 6-7 years to harness its strength and ageing and achieve perfect harmony.
