Didier Dagueneau Tasting (Arlequin wine bar): Completely different. Nose has very high intensity, very ripe fruit, tropical, mango and passion fruit, very reminiscent of am paper (Indian dried mango), nose has pronounced sweetness; palate is medium body, medium-high acid, tastes like it has slight RS though it may be the higher alcohol content. 91
Blind tasting, nose very fine of quince, tangerine, blackcurrant bud, and Lilly of the Valley. A hint of brasilian nuts. Mouth dry, mineral and sharp, with a lot of those Lilly, zest of tangerine skin. An aromatic wine very elegant with a super long aftertaste. Exceptionnal. Not easy to understand for average tasters. This vintage is sad for Dagueneau’s family : the father died in September during the harvest. So some friends winemakers help to accomplish his job made in the vines earlier. Thanks Mr Dagueneau for your superclass expression of sauvignon.
The vintage has a significance as the first one overseen by Didier Dagueneau's son Louis-Benjamin after his death in 2008. Pale, lemony green in colour. An extraordinary opulence of tropical aromas as passion fruit, mango and pineapple scents are mixed with elderflower jam. Perfectly balanced between a racy, savoury profile and an assertive yet refreshing mouth-feel. Exuberant, seductive and very long lasting.
