Serge Dagueneau Pouilly Fumé 2006

December 8, 2007

img_3768.jpgI love Sauvignon Blancs from the Loire. Why? Because the wines from Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé ultimately express its pure and pungent characters which are seldom encountered outside its heartland. This wine from Serge Dagueneau – and daughters Florence and Valérie – forms no exception to the rule. Made from grapes picked at optimal ripeness, its nose runs through melon, grapefruit, quince, white flowers and hazelnuts while the palate shows a near creamy texture with intense fruit flavours, ample minerality and zingy acid. A lovely wine that should be enjoyed in its youthful glory. 91 points
