Pouilly Fumé, Silex, Domaine Didier Dagueneau, Loire Valley, France, 2014
£30 per 125ml glass. Current wine list price £192.00
As the sunny days are upon us, this month Icon wine will be one of the gems of the Loire Valley.
This beautiful Sauvignon Blanc is pure, mineral and charming. It comes from a single vineyard and is barrel fermented, however, you are not going to find any creaminess in this wine!
Louis Benjamin Dagueneau succeeded to his father, Didier Dagueneau in 2008.Since then, he has managed the estate with the same passion, and somehow craziness, as his father. Throughout the years, Didier Dagueneau has managed to establish his name among the wine world’s stars. The goal of Didier Dagueneau, and now that of his son, has always been the purity of the varietal and the reflection of the “terroir”.
The wine is flinty on the nose, almost smokey, with aromas of ripe lemon, green apple and pear with reminiscent aromas of ripe tropical and stone fruits.
The palate is fresh but complex with a powerful minerality and an incredible balance. This fantastic wine would be the perfect match to our Loch Duart Salmon
