2012 Jardins de Babylone
Jardins de Babylone -- Extremely limited production. This dessert wine was considered by Didier himself to be the finest of all his wines. Made from Petit Manseng grown biodynamically on Silex (clay and flint) soil in a natural amphitheater of vines at the foot of the Pyranees near the village of Aubertin. Barrel fermented and aged mostly in 450 and 600 liter barrels, as well as some of Dagueneau's famous cigar barrels. Designed by the late Didier, these barrels are 350 liters and aggressively elongated. Dagueneau’s approach is to produce wines that bring out the natural minerality of the soil and have balance, harmony and longevity. The relative sweetness of each vintage is secondary to the balance of acidity, texture and richness of fruit and the wines will never be chaptalized.
