SILEX 2015
BENJAMIN DAGUENEAU

Dagueneau are renowned for being one of the most innovative estates in the Puilly-Fumé appellation, pushing the boundaries of winemaking to obtain superb results with Sauvignon Blanc. Only very tiny allocations of this wine are available, so grab them while you can.

  • Citrus and grapefruit aromas dominate with a tinge of smoky gunflint; beautiful texture and roundness.
  • ‘Silex’ means flint in French, and refers to the soils in which the Sauvignon vines are grown.
  • Wines are characterised by their extended lees contact, giving them amazing body and texture.
  • Will benefit from some age; needs 4 to 8 years to hit its stride.
  • Sublime with goat's cheese.
