Didier Dagueneau Silex 2000

In late September friends in Epeigné generously opened their only bottle of 2000 Silex. It was a wonderful wine and a fitting reminder to how good a wine producer the late Didier Dagueneau was. There are times when it doesn't make sense to break the wine down into its component parts – the fruit, the minerality, the aromas, the acidity, etc. The 2000 Silex was just wonderfully harmonious – a great wine period!
