All wines stored at 55° and 70% humidity
What sets the Dagueneaus apart is their balance of the new and the old, including an unwillingness to buy into some of the more dogmatic practices of organic and biodynamic farming. They tend to their Pouilly Fumé vineyards by making every attempt possible to respect the life and the soul of the soil. Using the techniques favored by the old-timers of the village, the yields are kept low at 45 hl/ha, only 75% of that of his neighbors. They employ twice the number of workers than a conventional winery to give extra attention to the vineyards, and they use a horse to plow certain parcels where they feel that the compacting of the soil by the tractor’s wheels would hurt the vines. Weather posts are placed strategically throughout the vineyards to help determine the best treatments and minimize the usage of copper sulfate, ideally less than is permitted in both organic and biodynamic farming. All the grapes are picked manually and completely de-stemmed.
