Louis Benjamin - Didier Dagueneau, Pouilly-Fumé, "Silex"

Dagueneau. The most profound and immortalized name to ever grace Pouilly-Fumé’s rich terroir. As far as cult French whites go, these wines have virtually zero competition.

Silex comes from Dagueneau’s low-yielding, old-vine parcels with the highest percentage of silex (flint) content. It is fermented in premium custom barrels in a range of sizes, designed and constructed specifically for this cuvée. Oak, however, never plays a starring role in Silex: Dagueneau’s farming is so impeccable that the perfectly healthy, beautifully ripe fruit remains front and center at all times. The barrel fermentation and lengthy lees contact simply serve to elevate the sublime texture of this powerful, mineral-driven wine. If you’ve never experienced Silex, brace yourself for a wine of uncommon purity and focus. The fruit here is so exotically intense with a chiseled, energetic personality that exudes every ounce of Pouilly-Fumé’s flint.
