Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
This extremely rare, very low production sweet wine was Didier Dagueneau’s passion project, and since his death in 2008, his children have carried on the tradition. This ’10 bottling marries bright acidity with honeyed tropical fruits, sweet citrus, white wildflowers, toasted nuts and spice, creating a dizzying, decadent experience that defies description. Weighty yet never cloying, Les Jardins de Babylone dances across the palate with vibrant acidity, and in 2010, this is an especially racy, thrilling wine. Dagueneau’s dessert wine, this sweet mono-varietal Petit Manseng derives from a vineyard located in a natural amphitheater at the foot of the Pyrenees; the grapes ferment in barrel, and the wine ages in standard barrels as well as cigar-shaped barrels designed by Didier Dagueneau.
