Jardins de Babylone – Dagueneau 2007


A monumental wine made before he passed away in a tragic, small aircraft accident in September 2008. Didier Dagueneau built a reputation as the cult producer of the Loire Valley. The reason? Densely concentrated and powerful wines of compelling style.

Unfortunately, two bottles both corked, the first was better and sadly for the restaurant. However the first bottle was acceptable, terribly dry, it seems sulfured and stunned, nose as tight as a rock, no real personality except of a dried out wine.

I am sad to say, I really couldn’t see the spirit behind this wine, it has no real balanced flavor – maybe a better bottle will yield a better experience.
