Benjamin Dagueneau

Below is the history of Didier Dagueneau prior to Didier's untimely death in 2008. His son Louis Benjamin Dagueneau, who had been working with his father for several years, took over the winery two weeks before the harvest of 2008. Didier's were no small shoes to fill, but Benjamin, now with three harvests under his belt, has more than proven to be up to the task. The 2008 "Pur Sang" is the apotheosis of the Loire. Voluptuous yet finely etched, it wraps its flavors of crystallized grapefruit and lemon zests around the tongue. Grandiose. A vin de meditation. David Schildknecht in the Wine Advocate sums it up with: "the 2009 collection ... promises to be the best group of Sauvignons rendered in that year.... The 2008s are also superb." In fact, one can even say that he and his sister Charlotte have brought new energy to an enterprise that was already considered at the top of its game. While the solar panels on the winery roof are an immediate tipoff that the younger Dagueneau will be reaching for new heights, tasting the 2008 & 2009 vintages are proof that things are on a path that his father would have approved of. The crystaline, multi-layered wines that Benjamin have crafted are among the best that have ever been produced in Saint-Andelain. Didier would be proud.
