Didier Dagueneau, Pouilly-Fume, Clos du Calvaire 2006
🦄 UNICORN WINE - VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND IN THE USA
Clos du Calvaire is, as the Clos in the name suggests, a small walled vineyard completely restored by Dagueneau a few years ago. Vines are planted very densely here, at over twice the normal density for Pouilly. A horse is used to plow the land, and the vines are planted on their own roots rather than rootstock. Needless to say, all these (slightly nutty) considerations result in juice that is extremely concentrated and intense. This is the third release from this difficult vineyard. The first was 1999! Mind blowing sauvignon blanc here, folks. And like nothing else in the world.
