This is built in the style of the great Silex Sauv Blancs from Didier Daganeau. It’s incredibly structured and layered, an elegant and age-worthy style of Sauvignon Blanc that speaks to the incredible trio of Kimmeridigian marl, chalky Portlandian, and clay-silex on flint from which this wine came. It's still a little tight in its youth, but as it opens up you can tell that this is a very special and complex bottle of wine with a lot of life ahead. 

"The former Florilège comes with a new name this year. Predominantly from limestone soils but also silex, the 2020 Pouilly Fumé Léon offers a clear, deep, fresh and spicy, quite complex and iodine bouquet with great precision and mineral intensity. Aged in stainless steel, concrete and 20% oak barrels (228 and 500 liter), this is a rich and round, very elegant and aromatic Pouilly-Fumé with good mineral and fruity freshness and a long, intense and tensioned finish that reveals fine tannins and crisp grip. This is a substantial wine with excellent aging potential. Bottled in March this year with 13% stated alcohol and a natural cork." -92 Pts, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
