Tasting Notes

In 2002 Didier Dagueneau embarked on his journey to produce sweet wine. He sought out an area that in his opinion, was not fully realizing it potential, and landed in Babylone at the foot of the Pyrenees south of Pau. Here, just outside of the village of Aubertin, he found a few hectares located in a natural ampitheatre facing a spectacular panorama of mountains. The vines were in good shape and it took only minor changes in the vineyards for Dagueneau and the Petit Manseng varietal to adapt to one another. Dagueneau's approach is to produce wines that bring out the natural minerality of the soil and have, above all else, balance, harmony, and longevity. 2004 was a great vintage for sweet wine in Jurancon, and Didier's inaugural vintage exemplifies this beautifully. Rich apricot and peach notes are in evidence here, with nuances of caramel and citrus fruits. Amazing viscosity is supported by vibrant acidity too. This historic first release from Didier Dagueneau will most certainly be a wine for the ages!

Provenance

IronGate.Wine is delighted to present the first tranche of a very fine Burgundian cellar from Toronto. It came to us from a fervent collector who took pride in his meticulously kept bottles and was always very acquainted with his investments in the region. His entire collection was professionally stored in Canada. While it is challenging to see his wines for sale, it is because he is relocating to Beaune permanently to live among the vines and terroir.
