Very backward today, with viscous green plum, green almond, quince, pineapple, fig and pear notes still assimilating one another. The long, toasted almond- and ginger-filled finish has terrific depth.

The aromatics on the Doisy-Daene comes racing out of the blocks like a March hare, soaring from the glass with honey, quince and lychee aromas with a sorbet like freshness and vivacity. The palate is supremely well balanced with a heightened level of tension and purity, offering delectable but subtle notes of white peach and apricot towards the beautifully composed, mineral-rich finish. Curiously, it reminds me of a top-flight Mosel Auslese, but what a fabulous Barsac from Denis Dubourdieu!
Barrel Sample: 95-97 Points
Herbaceous aromas are followed by nutmeg and crisp fruit. This has the great ripe fruit of the year without the huge intensity; it’s a wine that has subtlety as well as complexity.

Deep golden yellow with some amber. Fruit salad and floral aromas along with spicy, honeyed orange on the perfumed nose. Opulent and concentrated, with lovely inner-mouth aromatic quality and bright acidity framing the sweet fruit salad and pure mineral flavors. The very long finish offers a restrained sweetness and a fresh lemon sorbet quality.
A dense wine with honey, spice and butterscotch undertones. Full and very sweet. Turns spicy on the finish. Lots of botrytis character.
