Pur Sang is French for thoroughbred and is a joke that reflects Dagueneau’s annoyance at repeated references to the fact (by journalists) that he uses a horse to till some of vineyards. This is produced primarily from a vineyard north of Saint Andelain called La Folie. The soil here is deep clay with some limestone. The vineyard is gently sloped and has perfect south/southeast exposure. Some smaller parcels on the Saint Andelain hill occasionally also make it into this cuvée. Barrel fermented and aged. This is always a rich and powerful cuvée, enormously textural and complex. It is a wine that can live and live.
