Didier Dagueneau, Pouilly-Fumé Silex 2006

Dageuneau Silex 2006 #1

Star-bright.  Intricate and fumé on entry.  Impeccable key-lime and gooseberry fruit.  Definitive quartzite grip.  Filigree finish, silvery-cool and lattice-y.  Ageing with grace, the wine’s overt hyperactivity coming into balance, still vigilant and tension-filled.  Not as powerful as some of Didier’s work, it represents one of his more numinous examples.  Last bottle and a poignant farewell to one of the Loire’s defining mysto-farmers.  Now – 2020+.
