Didier Dagueneau 2020 Silex Pouilly-Fume

Didier Dagueneau 2020 Silex Pouilly-Fume

Region: Pouilly-Fumé, France

Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc



The 2020 Louis-Benjamin - Didier Dagueneau Pouilly-Fumé Silex is a highly anticipated vintage from the renowned Pouilly-Fumé appellation in the Loire Valley. This wine typically reflects the hallmark characteristics of Pouilly-Fumé, which include vibrant citrus notes, minerality, and a crisp, refreshing palate. Pouilly-Fumé Silex wines are often known for their flinty, smoky undertones, adding complexity to the aromatic profile. While I don't have specific tasting notes for this vintage, I recommend expecting bright acidity, a harmonious balance, and a distinct terroir-driven expression. For the precise flavor profile and unique qualities of the 2020 vintage, I suggest consulting the winery's official sources or seeking guidance from a wine expert.

Antonio Galloni - (93-94) Points

"While this was a warm season leading to richness in many wines from the region, the Silex 2020 shows ripe fruit, but there's no sense of being overblown. The fine line that races through many wines relying on flint-based parcels is there, carrying the nectarine and oak-derived vanilla flavors, but its influence never tips into austerity nor firmness. There's a sense of tenderness that runs through its core while remaining light in body."
