France - Loire - Pouilly-Fumé


Serge Dagueneau and his daughters are the uncle, and cousins, respectively, of Didier Dagueneau. Serge’s two daughters, Florence and Valerie, are two hard-working, serious young vigneronnes, and I think, are the prime reasons that this domaine is now starting to appear on many of the top wine lists in France. Serge, Florence and Valerie are also proponents of harvesting late, and their Les Pentes is marked by a distinctly ripe-tasting, rich, melony quality which comes from Sauvignon on calcaire soil, when harvested at its peak of maturity.
