2019 Pouilly Fumé Silex Didier Dagueneau - Loire Valley White
St Barth’s Wine
Decanter named Didier as one of the world's top ten makers of white wine, opining that his expressions tower over the rest of Pouilly-Fume' and that the makes brilliantly three-dimensional wines, while too many of his fellow producers struggle to make it to two. The Sauvignon Blanc wines of this risk-taking Loire perfectionist are legendary. This is the equivalent of a Grand Cru Pouilly-Fumé, produced from Sauvignon Blanc fruit hand-harvested from low-yield vineyards with high amounts of Silex soils (flinty clay) that give the wine its distinctive character.
Delicately minty, with hints of nettles, white pepper, it is naturally preserved. The power revealed by its material, with an almost tannic sensation, will take time to reveal itself. With great crystallinity, it offers a brilliant and tasty finish.
