Legndary winemaker Didier Dagueneau was affectionately referred to as the Wild man of Pouilly not only because of his looks but because his ideas seemed simply ludicrous at the time. He halved his yields and began tilling his vineyards by horse instead of tractor. He paid scrupulous attention to detail at every stage, from vineyard management (biodynamic since 1993) to winemaking processes in the cellar. He redeemed the reputation of Pouilly-Fumé and became one of the greatest winemakers of his generation. It was one of the biggest blows to the wine trade when he died in a tragic accident in 2008. However Didiers name lives on as the domaine is now led by his son Benjamin and daughter Charlotte. They continue the Dagueneau philosophy and consistently produce wines that are as pure, intense and otherworldly as their fathers.
 

The iconic Didier Dagueneaus legacy lives on in the remarkably pure and intense wines produced by his children, Benjamin and Charlotte. Buisson Renard is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from a clay-rich parcel at the lower end of Saint Andelain and is often the richest of the range. The 2018 is rich and exuberant with notes of lemon curd, green herbs, wax, honeysuckle and salt.
