Sustainable


Serge Dagueneau and his daughter, Valerie, are the uncle and cousin, respectively, of Didier Dagueneau.  Serge’s daughter, Valerie, who is now in charge of the domaine, is a proponent of harvesting late.  Their "Les Pentes" is marked by a distinctly ripe-tasting, rich, mineral quality which comes from Sauvignon on calcaire soil when harvested at its peak of maturity.  The Chasselas, originally a table grape for Pouilly and which made fortunes for growers in the 1800s when trains were trainsporting these by the carload to Paris, remains at this domaine yielding a pretty wine, enhanced by the fact that the vinesare over 115 years old.
