A legendary Pouilly Fumé domaine which was founded in 1982 by Didier Dagueneau. After his untimely death in 2008 the domaine was re-named and taken over by his son, who now runs it together with his sister.
These wines are amongst the finest made in the Loire valley. From an enclave just outside the cuverie in Saint Andelain, the Dagueneau Blanc Fume de Pouilly Silex delivers an almost inordinate diversity of floral, herbal, citrus (predominately grapefruit), and pit-fruit (predominately nectarine) elements, with the bitterness of fruit pits, smoky pungency of red currant and crushed stone, as well as notes of shrimp shell reduction and iodine inflecting a long, bittersweet, yet at the same time vibrant, buoyant finish. This silken textured seducer should gain with time in bottle and be worth following for ten or a dozen years.
