A Sauvignon Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2007 Didier Dagueneau Pouilly Fume Silex 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

“Greenish yellow. A kaleidoscopic nose combines lime zest, intense minerality, spicecake and white flowers. Wonderfully concentrated yet sharply focused, offering a suave blend of bracing citrus and mineral flavors and outstanding richness Strikingly deep and pure wine, finishing with strong mineral cut and superb lift and persistence. The young Benjamin Dagueneau is now in charge at this superb estate following the tragic death of his father Didier in the crash of an ultralight plane he was piloting in September of 2008." (March/April 10) This is Dagueneau's Grand Cru if you will. Produced only from plots high on the slopes of Saint Andelain, and only from vineyards that possess high amounts of silex. Vines here range from 15-50 years of age and are cropped to lower yields than in some other vineyards. Barrel fermented and aged in 450, 600 liter and cigar barrels. Before Didier's tragic death in September, he described this wine as perhaps his favorite of all vintages. For him, the incremental changes made in both the winery and vineyards over the years had come together with a vintage that could best express what he was trying to say. Sit back and marvel at what the years have in store for this wine, and make sure you save some.” Stephen Tanzer, IWC
