Didier Dagueneau Silex (Blanc Fumé de Pouilly) Pouilly Sur Loire Loire 2006

My last Silex made by the man, the legend, the l’enfant terrible himself. And what a wine it was! Clear and clean in the glass without a trace of green in the silvery-yellow moon color. The nose expresses more melon than apricot, with lemon oil, wet limestone and smokey flint. Exquisitely balance and nuanced ... is that creamed corn I detect? Still vibrant and crisp at age twelve. 12 % alc. With dinner at Tavola with Charlie and Pat Chadwick. 05.25.18. Highly Recommended.
