From a single parcel below the estate’s home base of Saint Andelain – deeper but still flint-strewn – the Dagueneau 2009 Blanc Fume de Pouilly Buisson Renard smells of peppermint and cassis, with nettle and huckleberry adding pungency and bitterness on the ample, lushly-textured palate. Kiwi, pineapple, and nectarine well-up to banish any thought that this might become austere, and lead to a lusciously juicy finish. This exceptional etude in fruit and herb sublimates any obvious sense of things mineral yet is nonetheless impressively complex.
This cuvee is issued from a plot selection of Sauvignon planted on a flint soil. Originally, this plot was named Buisson Mesnard, but some tasters have made mistake by naming this wine Buisson Renard on their Guide and Didier Dagueneau took a malicious pleasure to renamed this cuvée, after this story, Buison Renard.
Blend of the 2009 vintage: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
