A pungent suggestion of diverse hedge flowers and high-toned herbs rises from the glass of Dagueneau 2010 Blanc Fume de Pouilly Silex; then migrates to a palate dominated by succulent grapefruit, white peach, and cassis. Breadth, opulence, sheer extract, a silken texture, and high glycerin, all seem to enhance this Sauvignon’s sense of sweet ripeness, though citrus zest and berry skin lend satisfying counterpoint. There is resonance and depth to the finish here, and if for now not quite the dazzling complexity of the corresponding Sancerre Monts Damnes, then certainly a compelling performance that promises to be worth revisiting over the next dozen or more years.

Two different lots of vines 15-50 years old. Lots of cigar-shaped barrels used for this wine. Very fine and confident and first growth like. Pure and clean and lean. Long. Sophisticated. Much my favourite of the Dagueneau wines. Clean and razor sharp and with so much fruit to compensate for the acidity and bone dryness. (JR) (11/2012)
