Wine Comments
Produced from grapes sourced on the higher slopes of the village of Saint Adelaine. Here the soils have little clay buy high amounts of silex (flint). Relatively old vines, which are heavily cropped given very low yields of perfect fruit. This wine is Dagueneau's grand cru. Designed for ageing, it will be quite closed and austere in it's youth, but will reward cellaring.

The Domaine
A legendary Pouilly Fumé domaine which was founded in 1982 by Didier Dagueneau. After his untimely death in 2008 the domaine was re-named and taken over by his son, who now runs it togehter with his sister.
These wines are amongst the finest made in the Loire valley. At times a little austere in their youth, they are designed to be cellared like great Burgundies. After a few years of ageing the wines positively explode with fruit flavours and with mineral expressions of the local terroir.

Food Pairing
An amazing match with goats cheese salad, poultry dishes and seafood dishes such as freshly shucked oysters, prawns, green lip mussels and creamy scallops.
