THE BEST SAUVIGNON BLANC IN THE WORLD? 🌍🤯 Have you tried Silex? What about any of Dagueneau’s other wines? Do you think there’s a better Sauvignon Blanc? LET ME KNOW in the comments BELOW ⬇️📝 Didier Dagueneau was a winemaker in the Loire Valley who received a cult following for his Sauvignon blanc wines from the Pouilly Fumé appellation. He died on 17 September 2008, in an ultralight plane crash in the Cognac region of France. He is survived by two children with his ex-wife Martine, Benjamin and Charlotte, who work at the domaine 🇫🇷 Dagueneau was born in 1956, his winery with 12ha of vineyards was in the town of Saint-Andelain, in Pouilly Fumé. He was seeking to make "the best Sauvignon blanc in the world". He made a variety of different cuveés, including Buisson-Renard, Pur Sang (French for "pureblood"), Asteroïde, and Silex ("flint"). Somewhat unusually for the appellation and grape variety, many of his wines were meant for cellaring and some had a clear influence of oak 🕰 His vineyard practices were a combination of the exacting extremely low yields, hand harvesting in multiple passes, with the unusual, such as using horses to plow the soil between vines. He was described as a risk taker and an experimenter, with perfectionist attitudes to his work, cutting yields severely to achieve greater ripeness ☀️ I visited @christosom at @110london recently where I tasted Pur Sang, this in the same week that I Silex. Christopher talked to me about his visits to the domaine, telling me that he believes Didier’s Son is not only continuing his fathers legacy, but could also be bringing a new dimension to the wines, producing even more elegance and precision 💣 Prior to tasting Didier’s wines I was unsure that Sauvignon Blanc could ever be good enough to justify the price tag. Once I tasted I immediately knew that I was wrong 😍 #wine#vivino#winelover#wino#vineyard#winereview

[Eng.following Rus.] #Мадейра: что мы знаем об этом маленьком португальском регионе-острове. Достаточно мало. Где всего менее 1000 гектар виноградников, местные редкие сорта, долгая выдержка имитируюшая трюмы старых шхун в которых возили много месяцев бочонки с вином. На Мадейре делают вероятно самые долгоживущие крепленые вина на планете Земля. В Русском винном клубе, его активным участникам удалось, нет, посчастливилось собрать уникальный сет зрелых вин (сет ниже а также листайте карусель), нашими фаворитами стали оба 1958 и 1968, свежие и яркие вина, причем благодаря высокой кислотности, являющейся отличительной особенностью вин Мадейры по сравнению с другими креплеными винами, этим жить и жить еще...

What do we know about Madeira? beautiful small Portuguese island from 600 km from Africa and has less than 1000 hectares of vineyards. Long story of winemaking and unique techniques of making fortified wines. Probably the longest live wines in the earth, almost immortal... . #madeira#gossartgordon#bual#blandys#fortifiedwine#russianwineclub#rwc#oldwine#wineandme#instawine#winegasm#wine#winelovers#wineplease#winepleasure#winetime#winegeek#winefans#vino#vineyards
Sitting here in complete and utter shock as I've received word that I somehow passed my #wsetdiploma fortified wine exam. I was convinced I had failed over the last 10 or so weeks. Two down, four to go. Wine business up next.
