The founder of the Domaine was Didier Dagueneau. He was seeking to make "the best Sauvignon blanc in the world".
His vineyard practices were a combination of the exacting extremely low yields, hand harvesting in multiple passes with the unusual, such as using horses to plow the soil between vines.
He was described as a risk taker and an experimenter, with perfectionist attitudes to his work, cutting yields severely to achieve greater ripeness.
Now the domaine is owned by his 2 sons: Benjamin and Charlotte.
