Perhaps the most famous of the Dagueneau cuvées, the 2018 Silex is flowing and accessible on entry, but then it coils and tightens. The silex (flint) soil gives firmness, imbuing structure and steely tension. Power and concentration combine, providing an almost waxy texture on the finish. Flavors of spiced apples, almonds and pastry linger. It's just not quite as long as expected. Tasted over three days. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, August 2021)

A bold Sauvignon Blanc from this renowned producer. Super subtle notes of stones 🪨, minerals, lemon zest 🍋, lime zest, plastic, hints of melon 🍈 and mint🍃. Super delicate wine which will age extremely well. Pair this with shellfish or goats cheese 😊.
