Thursday, July 3, 2014 - Silvery Sauvignon Blanc colour. Nose is ozone, fresh-chucked oyster shells, a bracing sea breeze, wet pebbles. Palate is wet stones from a brook, very crisp, white apple, precise but slightly overwhelming acidity. Beautifully made. Some length. Fruit stones emerge on the palate after 2+ hours in the glass. Some length. Super...... but I would mistake it blind for a killer Sauvignon Blanc at this stage of its development. Needs at least another 5 years to flesh out. Everyone loved this.

    8/21/2014 9:57:00 PM - Didier Dagueneau Pouilly Fumé “Silex”. Silex means flint. This wine is Dagueneau's grand cru. It shows a terrific concentration of freshness and a bright appley fruit of crystalline purity. Really powerful, long and shimmering. (100% Sauvignon Blanc from 35 and 60 years and yields are kept lower than most other vineyards)
