Pouilly Fume

Louis-Benjamin Dagueneau

Silex Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2010

Mid Lemon in colour. Initial touch of oxidation on nose which largely disappeared. Barb said aromas of Dandelion which is a lawn weed in Australia. Very minerally (from soil riddled with flint). Touch of pineapple. This is barrel fermented Sauvignon Blanc from Pouilly Fume and as different as possible from Marlborough NZ Sauvignon Blanc. Great Intensity on the palate with the Oak in perfect balance. One of the 1001 wines. In the book “probably the greatest white made in the Upper Loire Valley”. I would like to try a younger vintage in the future. Made by the eccentric Didier Dagueneau. — 9 days ago

@Bob McDonald We happened across this exact wine in the early 2000's and were smitten ever since. I sought out large format bottles for safe keeping, every one has been epic and holding just fine. This bottle and the Pur Sang are our favorites. I almost got a pre-2008 Asteroide once, but it slipped through my fingers as I didn't react fast enough to secure. One day though...

Domaine Clos des Rocs

Clos des Rocs Pouilly-Loche Chardonnay 2016

A bit richer than I expected, a nice Chardonnay from the maconnais. Lemon and wax, mouth filling, acid a smidge less than expected.

I went back to this on day 3, and this is really singing now. All of the pieces are seamless and that lemon pith minerality really shines through. Would increase to a 9.1. Maybe one to decant.

Château Fuisse

Vieilles Vignes Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay

Opulent oak is balanced by citrusy zesty acidity to cut through the richness, with fragrant apricots and apples on the nose. It’s wonderful. — 4 days ago

Bois Seguin Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2016

Full bodied and smooth . Buttery and not at all oakey. Flavors enhanced when only slightly chilled. Pairs well with seafood. Great white burgundy — 10 days ago
