There is no bigger name or more highly regarded producer in the Loire than Domaine Didier Dagueneau. Pur Sang (French for thoroughbred) is a superstar in the Dagueaneau cellar, and is widely considered one of the great white wines of the world. It comes from a densely planted, 30 year old vineyard in Saint-Laurent-l’Abbaye called La Folie (the madness), hidden between two parcels of woodland about five kilometres north of Saint-Andelain.

Sourced from a south-facing single vineyard on flint and clay over chalk, the 2018 Pur Sang is all white flowers and spiced apple pastry. Seemingly effortless and silken, its Sauvignon edges rounded out in barrels. It offers excellent concentration on the mid-palate, a line of acidity acting like a thread and holding the core together like a ball. Delectably textured, with a hint of tannic sensation holding the mouth gently on a lengthy conclusion that's drawn-out and precise. A complex, multifaceted wine. Drink 2022 - 2032.

A crisp, textural and beautifully expressive white wine that grows in almost every wine growing country across the world. In the hands of a great winemaker, Sauvignon Blanc can rival the very best white wines of the world with its complex aromas and flavours that you won't find in other white varieties. The expressions from Sancerre and Bordeaux set the benchmark the world over, using oak as a medium for body and spice, and in great Sauvignon Blanc you'll find notes of white florals, gentle herbals, creme fraiche, cassis, melon, complex citrus, pear, gooseberry, vanilla, cashew and hints of passionfruit.
