Les Jardins de Babylone is a cuvée apart, with little alcohol, in a very airy style... It is the finesse and exceptional aromatic precision that stand out, when you are lucky enough to dip your lips in this exceptional nectar that recalls the great Auslese of Egon Muller or other great German or Austrian sweet wines...

"Finally, as proof that these wines are also made to keep, the 2008, with its relevant energy, is also starting to truffle17,5/20 RVF Guide 2020

"One of the seven wonders in the world of sweet wines, Les Jardins de Babylone is run by Louis Benjamin Dagueneau, assisted by Pautrat, his faithful cellar master. They have not changed the jewel of a vineyard created by Didier Dagueneau, his father, and the perfectionism of his wine making" Bettane et Desseauve

Didier Dagueneau, reputed to be the best Sauvignon winemaker in the world, died accidentally at the age of 52. The continuity of this prestigious estate being ensured today by his children, in particular Louis Benjamin who is carrying this world-renowned estate ever higher.

The Domaine :

The other nugget of the Dagueneau family is this 3.1 hectare vineyard made of terraces on the slopes of the small village of Aubertin, a terroir historically renowned for producing Jurançon wines of singular freshness and vivacity. With the precious help of Guy Pautrat, Louis-Benjamin Dagueneau continues the work of his father Didier and now reaches the highest level of Jurançon and more widely of the great sweet wines of the world. The production is confidential and highly prized by the great lovers of sweet wines...

The same rigour and precision are applied to this micro-domain as to Domaine Didier Dagueneau in Pouilly. The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted successively to keep only the best of this famous Petit Manseng grape variety, which produces an exceptional treasure here. Fermentations in new wood are carefully selected between half muids and cigars, as Didier Dagueneau used to do.

The Estate Didier Dagueneau

The quintessence of Sauvignon... The Didier Dagueneau estate offers us the best Sauvignon in the world. Minerality, power, breed and aromatic complexity are the result of an exceptional terroir. Didier Dagueneau is an absolutely essential name in Loire wines and Louis-Benjamin continues his work with the same brio, "an extremist of quality" who brings the Pouilly wines to a unique level. The wines of a purist...

The Estate Montcalmès

Frédéric Pourtalié has become a Languedoc icon. The Montcalmès vineyard covers an area of 23 hectares today; Syrah and Grenache on a limestone plateau and Mourvèdre on rolled pebbles. A blend has been produced since 1999, the one that made the reputation of the Domaine. It is aged for twenty-four months in barrels, in the purest tradition without fining or filtration, a cuvée of unfailing regularity. Other cuvées made in Montcalmès have since been added to the range, starting with the rare white Marsanne and Roussane as well as Le Geai and a 100% Grenache cuvée. A domain to be drunk with your eyes closed...
