In 2002 Didier Dagueneau embarked on his journey to produce sweet wine. He sought out an area that in his opinion, was not fully realizing its potential, and landed in Babylone at the foot of the Pyrenees south of Pau. Here, just outside of the village of Aubertin, he found a few hectares located in a natural ampitheatre facing a spectacular panorama of mountains. Dagueneau's approach, and one that continues to be followed by his son, was to produce wines that bring out the natural minerality of the soil and have, above all else, balance, harmony, and longevity. Rich apricot and peach notes are in evidence here, with nuances of caramel and citrus fruits. Amazing viscosity is supported by vibrant acidity too.
