2008 Didier Dagueneau Silex Pouilly Fumé

Didier Dagueneau, the prodigiously bearded wildman of the Loire, made some of the best Pouilly-Fumés and Sancerres ever. He died when his ultra-light plane crashed in 2008, but his son, Benjamin, has kept the wines at the same level. This lovely Sauvignon Blanc, with its minerally grapefruit-peel scent, is his first solo vintage.

Pairing: Grilled Broccoli and Bread Salad with Pickled Shallots
