Another Wine Luminary Passes: Didier Dagueneau

Didier DagueneauKnown as the “wild man of the Loire,” Didier Dagueneau made some of the most unusual and exceptional Sauvignon Blanc-based wines from his estate in Saint-Andelain, in the Dordogne of the Loire Valley, France.  Dagueneau passed away after a microlite plane accident at the age of 52.

Always ecentric and in later years, considered more of a hermetic luminary, he consistently produced absolutely stunning wines and he will be sorely missed.
