Greatest Sauv Blanc in the World (Limited Quantity!!!)

This is a brief opportunity to buy one of the greats in one of the greatest vintages. I have till Monday to get orders in.

Didier Dagueneau – Loire Valley. France

Didier Dagueneau was an icon in French winemaking. With the fervor of a crusader, and the intensity of a mad scientist, he strived for perfection in his wines through strict selection of fruit,lower yields and experimentation with barrels. The resulting wines are among the greatest expression of Sauvignon Blanc in the world.

Didier Dagueneau Pouilly-Fume “Pur Sang” 2009
“Based primarily on fruit from a relatively clay-rich site in Saint Laurent, the Dagueneau 2009 Blanc Fume de Pouilly Pur Sang smells deliciously of elder flower white peach, and cassis. Vividly peachy and with rock-licking minerality, in the mouth this could be mistaken for a great Riesling. Nettle and grapefruit lend brightness in a long, luscious, vibrant finish that also incorporates rich, saline oyster liqueur and oyster meat-like elements. This is going to be both accessible and at the same time worthy of careful attention to its nuances over the coming decade or so.”

Didier Dagueneau Pouilly-Fume “Silex” 2009
“From an enclave just outside the cuverie in Saint Andelain, the Dagueneau 2009 Blanc Fume de Pouilly Silex delivers an almost inordinate diversity of floral, herbal, citrus (predominately grapefruit), and pit-fruit (predominately nectarine) elements, with the bitterness of fruit pits, smoky pungency of red currant and crushed stone, as well as notes of shrimp shell reduction and iodine inflecting a long, bittersweet, yet at the same time vibrant, buoyant finish. This silken textured seducer should gain with time in bottle and be worth following for ten or a dozen years.”

Didier Dagueneau Sancerre “Les Monts Damnes” 2009
“From young vines planted in formerly long-barren acreage, the Dagueneau 2009 Sancerre Monts Damnes smells of ripe white peach, lime, and nut oils, along with intimations of chalk dust. The promises of the nose are fulfilled on a palate additionally suffused with a gorgeous, sweet-saline savor of lobster shell reduction. A smoky, fusil hint of red currant, peat, and struck stones carries throughout as well. The chalky and savory mineral elements, nut oils, and ripe yet fresh fruit convey a luscious length that doesn’t betray the wine’s over-14% alcohol.”
