    Apparently, he died in a plane crash over Cognac.

    The e-mail my wife received indicated it was hang gliding.

    yeah. However, the e-mail came from my wife's importer of Dagueneau's wines and there is a thread over at eRobert$$$$er.

    Looks like the news is traveling pretty slow tonight. Probably by morning it'll be announced. Still I can only find this: Louis/Dressner Selections

    Wildman of the Loire, Didier Dagueneau RIP | MetaFilter

    http://www.decanter.com/news/268009.html

    et de plus, en français, mes amis:

    Didier Dagueneau, le célèbre viticulteur, est mort dans un accident d'ULM, actualité Société : Le Point

    in the last link, the french cite the cause of his death to be a ULM accident... that's un ultra-léger motorisé or ultra/microlight aircraft... it could be anything from a hang glider to a light sport aeroplane.

    *edit: after finishing the french article, it says that after the ULM fell 50 meters, it caught fire. not only was dagueneau killed in the accident but another person was also seriously injured. i'm thinking the apparatus was more than just a hang glider.
