2018 Pur Sang Magnum Louis Benjamin Dagueneau - Large Format 150cl / 13.5%
A magnum bottle of 2018 Pur Sang made by Louis Benjamin Dagueneau from Domaine Didier Dagueneau.
Didier Dagueneau was a winemaker in the Pouilly Fumé region of France's Loire valley, and attracted wide acclaim in his efforts to make 'the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world'. Unusually for what is generally regarded as an early-drinking variety, his wines were substantially structured, sometimes oaked, and intended for extended cellaring.
Dagueneau tragically died in a microlight plane accident in 2008.

The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment.
