Dagueneau Pouilly Fume Silex 2011

Dagueneau Pouilly Fume Silex 2011

100% Sauvignon Blanc. Didier Dagueneau was a fourth generation winemaker in the village of St Andelain in Pouilly-Fumé. In typical Didier fashion, in 1982 he elected to set up his winery in Pouilly-Fumé instead of joining the family fold. Inspired by the great wines of Burgundy and other top regions, his mentors were Edmond Vatan and Henri Jayer, and emboldened by the wisdom and traditions of his grandfather, Louis Dagueneau, he set about to create a Pouilly-Fumé of extraordinary dimension and terroir focus exploiting the top vineyard sites. Today, the domaine is run by fifth generation Louis-Benjamin Dagueneau, Didier's son, whose curiosity and drive have further soldified the domaine's place in the upper echelon of the wine world.

Tasting Notes
"A delightfully, pungently intense bouquet of hedge flowers and resinous herbs rises from the glass of Dagueneau 2011 Blanc Fume de Pouilly Silex, anticipating the bittersweet presence of herbal essences and inner-mouth floral perfume that are allied to nut and citrus oils on a dense, subtly oleaginous palate. This finishes with an authoritative sense of grip and I expect it will not only perform well for a decade but benefit from being left alone for the first several years in bottle." - David Schildknecht
