About Didier Dagueneau
Before he passed away in a tragic, small aircraft accident in September 2008, Didier Dagueneau built a reputation as the(italicize) cult producer of the Loire Valley. The reason? Densely concentrated and powerful wines of compelling originality.
92 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2007
($60) Yellow-gold. Exotic, leesy toast, butter and smoke atop rich peach, yellow apple and tangerine aromas. Broad, dense and chewy, with deep, powerful apricot, pear and tangerine flavors and a smoky, buttery quality that persists through the finish. Mineral notes sneak in on the very back, along with building acidity, giving this a taut, citrussy quality. Richer and deeper than the Pur Sang but I prefer the previous wine's clarity today.
