Domaine Didier Dagueneau
2012 Pouilly Fumé “Silex”

TASTING NOTES FROM BRANDON MCKAY
Vertical Detroit – Server

“The “Silex” from Domaine Didier Dagueneau is one of my go to summer whites, and 2012 was a truly exceptional vintage. The winemaker utilizes biodynamic farming methods as well as barrel fermentation to craft this incredible small production wine. The wine has concentrated notes of apricot with hints of grapefruit. It has great minerality and crushed stone flavors balanced with a strong backbone of acidity. I would suggest this wine with seafood, grilled vegetables, or traditional Lebanese mezza.”

CAYUSE VINEYARDS

Walla Walla, Washington
*Also Available 2013 Vintage


TASTING NOTES FROM KYLE MILLER

Vertical Detroit – Server & Wine Enthusiast

“This wine comes highly rated from both Robert Parker & Wine Enthusiast, receiving almost perfect scores. Syrah is one of my favorite grape varietals because of its versatility. It has the capability to represent either side of the spectrum from light to full bodied. The 2014 vintage is remarkably rich and complex with notes of tobacco and white pepper with dark cherry and black currant on palate. This would be the ideal pairing for the tomahawk steak or duck confit at Vertical Detroit!”

“The Antinori Family is well known for their incredible Italian wines, and the 2014 Cervaro della Sala is no exception to that legacy. Produced from 90% Chardonnay & 10% Grechetto, this is one of the greatest white wines I have ever tasted. This wine gives your palate everything a well-made wine should, from oak to minerality to fruit. This wine is beautiful on its own but would also be perfect paired with anything from scallops to a charcuterie & cheese board.”
