Domaine DIDIER DAGUENEAU Jurancon "Les Jardins de Babylone" Moelleux 2014 - Magnum 1.5L
Wine Region: South-West - France
Grape: Petit Manseng
Tasting notes: On the rise, carried by Petit Manseng, this 2014 vintage expresses itself with dazzling scents of mango, verbena and lemongrass. The aromatic development is impressive with a return to larded and dried apricot notes. The texture on the palate is the synthesis of invigorating freshness and a racy texture with minerals in the making. The persistence is impressive without any heaviness.
About the winery: Didier Dagueneau is the fourth-generation of winemaker in the small village of St. Andelain in Loire-Valley.

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.
