Best white wine of 2006

2006 saw the creation of this blog. Unfortunately, some awesome bottles opened this year didn't make it online. Therefore I am happy to post on my best white of 2006; It was by far Silex 2002 from Didier Dagueneau. Made in the Sancerre region it is so much more than what the appellation is known for. The palate is very large and the flavours numerous. The wine starts with fall fruits, apples, quince, pears, switch to minerality and then is calling in buttery notes and creme brulee. This bio-dynamic producer made something huge in 2002. Worth the price (over $100) on this specific vintage.

Silex 2002 has a brilliant flavor. You seldom get a wine which has a very large palate and the numerous flavors, together in a combo. It also goes well with all kind of stuff you would like to have as add-on. Atleast my grilled chicken goes well with that. Also if you buy cigars, you will not get disappointed.
