Didier Dagueneau Silex 2019 750ml



"The 2019 Pouilly Fumé Silex shows an initial tenderness, sitting quietly and not shouting that it's made it into your glass. This is a wine that has its act together, feeling integrated and balanced with plentiful concentration and a savory long finish. A delicate dill note, which is a characteristic of oaked Sauvignon peeks out amid the hush." Vinous 93 Points

Importer Notes:

The incremental changes made in both the winery and vineyards over the years and more recently by Benjamin Dagueneau have come together with a vintage that could best express what he was trying to say.  Aromatic ripeness without high alcohol.  Massive mineral concentration that will yield over time and marry perfectly with the high-toned fruit components and barrel and bottle complexity that seem in perfect harmony.  The most young and backward of the bunch (as usual), this wine has massive acidity that provides the perfect balance to the mineral profile that is so prevalent in the mouth.  No shortage of fruit, but for the time being, this wine is all about structure and potential.  Sit back and marvel at what the years have in store for this wine, and make sure you save some.
