Wine Region: South-West - France
Grape: Petit Manseng
Tasting notes: 2016 offers us a Babylone Moelleux of very high quality. Exotic fruits sparkle in the glass from the first nose with the vibrant scents of mango, apricot and roasted pineapple. The infusion notes bring a very nice freshness with verbena and linden. This aromatic development continues unceasingly in interminable complexity. In the mouth, there is no heaviness in spite of the immense substance. The body is ultra-tasty and persistent.
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.
