Domaine Serge Dagueneau Pouilly Fumé Les Pentes 2014
2 ha of South facing vines on Kimmeridgian marls,entirely hand-harvested, free-run juice is fermented only using indigenous yeasts in stainless steel, élevage sees some lees-stirring. While the calcareous soil in the vineyards give the wines ample structure and the ability to age for five or more years, the vineyards of Poiully Fume typically have more clay and depth than the poorer more chalky soils of neighbouring Sancerre. This is particularly so in the prime area of Saint Andelain where most of the families vineyard holding are located. This results in wine's showing a clarity and intensity of varietal sauvignon blanc flavour with more texture and generosity which gives the wine immediate appeal while also enabling them to age for 5 to 10 years as the wines take on a slightly honeyed richness more reminiscent of Burgundy origins.
