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... 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. - David Schildknecht
