Silex Blanc Fume De Pouilly 2007 Didier Dagueneau 75cl / 12.5%
A bottle of Fumé de Pouilly Silex 2007 from producer Didier Dagueneau.
Didier Dagueneau was a winemaker in the Pouilly Fumé region of France's Loire valley, and attracted wide acclaim in his efforts to make 'the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world'. Unusually for what is generally regarded as an early-drinking variety, his wines were substantially structured, sometimes oaked, and intended for extended cellaring.
Dagueneau tragically died in a microlight plane accident in 2008.
This lot comes from the temperature-controlled cellar of media businessman and wine enthusiast Lord Evgeny Lebedev, where it has been kept since purchase direct from UK importers.
