Pouilly Fume Buisson Renard Didier Dagueneau 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The site having been ravaged by hail in this vintage, Dagueneau’s 2008 Blanc Fume de Pouilly Buisson Renard exhibits a particularly intense concentration. Hedge flowers, elder flower, gooseberry, honeydew, and musk melon follow from the nose onto a firm, bright, yet oily-textured palate. Bitter notes of huckleberry and citrus zest add to the sizzle of a slightly aggressive finish. It could be that this needs more time to recover from bottling, but I suspect that near-severity and somewhat aggressive finishing phenolics are simply in its nature. While highly impressive, this needs to be paired at table – or for that matter, cellared – with considerable watchfulness...90+" WA 08/10
