The Magic of Dagueneau
2018 Dagueneau Pouilly-Fumé Silex

Posted by Ian McFadden

A few weeks ago, we offered Dagueneau's 2018 Sancerre Le Mont Damnés. It sold out in a matter of hours.

Today, we're excited to offer Dagueneau's top bottling, the 2018 Pouilly-Fumé Silex.

Dagueneau's work with Sauvignon Blanc is without peer. As we said in the previous email, there are no examples of the grape that reach an equal amount of depth and sophistication.

Silex is sourced from a vineyard high up on the hill of St. Andelain in Pouilly-Fumé, where there's a significant portion of flinty silex soil and considerably less clay.

Dagueneau's Silex is an absolutely riveting bottle. It combines intensity with incredible focus and mineral precison. There is simply no Sauvginon Blanc quite like it, and few that age as well. It is the distance runner of Dagueneau's lineup.

The 2018 Silex is an especially powerful vintage for the wine. Still, it maintains its signature tightly-woven core of stony minerality. Expect a seriously complex presentation of stone fruits, spice, and herbs backed by tension and lift.

Everytime I drink a bottle of Silex, I'm in awe of the wine. There's something magical about its balance, nuance, and detail. I'm very happy to have the opportuntiy to offer the 2018 Silex.
