Louis Benjamin Dagueneau Pur Sang Fume de Pouilly 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard: Produced primarily from a vineyard north of Saint Andelain called La Folie. Occasionally, some smaller plots on the Saint Andelain hill make it into this cuvee. Orientation: The vineyard is gently sloped and has perfect south/southeast exposure Soil: The soil here is deeper clay with some chalky limestone. There is virtually no silex in the soil. Viticulture: Farmed biodynamically. The domaine employs twice the number of employees than a conventional winery would use for the same acreage. The goal is to produce, on the average, 75% of the yields common to neighboring wineries. Vinification: Barrel fermented Aging: Aged mostly in 450 and 600 liter barrels, as well as some of Dagueneau's famous cigar barrels. Designed by the late Didier, these barrels are 350 liters and agressively elongated. Production: limited Notes: Arguably the domaine's most popular cuvée
