Domaine DIDIER DAGUENEAU Jurancon "Les Jardins de Babylone" Sec 2015
Wine Region: Jurancon - France
Grape: Petit Manseng, Gros Manseng, Courbu, Camaralet, Lauzet
Tasting notes: In this wine, limestone explodes in the full nose, pineapple notes rebound on quince, clementine, mirabelle plum, orange peel, fennel and chlorophyll. The feeling of verticality is immediate. On the palate, the wine offers an impression of very controlled density, then refines itself towards a scathing finish with iodized and spicy accents.
About the winery: Didier Dagueneau is the fourth-generation of winemaker in the small village of St. Andelain in Loire-Valley. He created a cult following for his Sauvignon Blanc in the Pouilly-Fume appellation. In 2008, his children took over the 11 hectares vineyard. His son, Benjamin, oversees the winemaking and his daughter, Charlotte, takes care of the running of the business. The Dagueneau family makes limited quantities of wine from their small plots of land, with a reputation of making some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world.
