Dagueneau 2019 "Silex" Blanc Fume de Pouilly, Loire Valley
A spectacular vintage from one of France's most iconic estates. Started in 1982 by Didier Dagueneau who set forth tipping Pouilly-Fume on its side by making wines from Sauvignon Blanc that rival those of Burgundy. Silex vineyards have always been treated like those of Burgundy's Grand Crus. Benjamin Dagueneau took over the reins in 2008 when his father Didier passed away in an experimental plane crash. Silex is always the leanest and most needing of time in the Dagueneau lineup, but the wait is way worth it. World class.
