List of products by brand Didier Dagueneau

We are located in the eastern part of the Loire Valley, in the village of Saint-Andelain, north of Pouilly-sur-Loire: one of the absolute reign of sauvignon blanc, it is here dubbed "fumé blanc", which gives rise to the name "Pouilly- Fumé ". Didier Dagueneau was a virtuous character: disciple of Henri Jayer, the undisputed father of the new wine-growing Burgundy, the ideas and practices of Didier inspired winemakers from around the world.

"Everything about this man, was out of the ordinary" (Jacques Perrin wrote him): wild-looking, a way of making provocative and almost always with an attitude of infinite modesty and gratitude towards life, Didier was a adherent of biodynamics and harsh critic of both rigid rules imposed by the certifications. It has sided bluntly against practices common at the time in Pouilly-sur-Loire, where winemakers favored Sauvignon average quality practicing low densities per vine and collected mechanized. "I endeavor to treat my vineyard as a work of art," said Didier. And his Sauvignon are. Wines that go beyond the donar pleasure soaked wines of lyricism and charm, able to read the wonderfully varied terrain of Saint-Andelain and able to donate emotions that vibrate the human senses. Who died prematurely at the age of 52, September 17, 2008, since then the 11.5 hectares are managed in the same spirit by his son Louis-Benjamin with the help of his sister Charlotte.
