Domaine Didier Dagueneau, Sancerre ‘Le Mont Damné’ 2017
Didier’s untimely death has left a huge void in our lives. Didier Dagueneau was, without doubt, one of the most unconventional, yet creative winemakers anywhere. Never one to rest on his laurels, Didier was always experimenting with his techniques with the goal of raising the bar on quality. Whether it was organic viticulture, sans-soufre winemaking, own-rooted vineyards, natural fermentations or experimental barrels, he always had an open mind to both the benefits and pitfalls of these practices. In the end, he was his own toughest critic and forged his own philosophies, which were more often than not grounded in the wisdom of tradition.
