St Andelain Library Vertical (the Unicorn)
2012 - 2013 - 2014
If Raveneau had made Sauvignon Blanc…
St Andelain is our homage to the incomparable late Didier Dagueneau. He single-handedly revolutionized Sauvignon Blanc, bringing it to Grand Cru status as any great white Burgundy. An iconoclast among vignerons and sommeliers, he was infatuated with great Burgundies and used methods uncommon to Pouilly-Fumé, including severe pruning for drastically low yields, hand-harvesting of fruit over several successive passes (tris) through the vineyards, vineyard-designate bottling, skin contact, and barrel-fermentation. He also created his own barrels, the most famous being a cigar shape barrel we have adopted at Soliste to craft St Andelain. (Read more about the iconoclast Didier Dagueneau and here).
