    Winemaker's Notes:

    #45 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013

    The wine of Doisy-Daëne has a particular style, emphasizing the brightness of concentrated by the "noble rot" fruit, nervousness, and the delicate balance of flavors. This style is both the expression of a large limestone soil and a family aesthetic tradition, the racy white wines, with a purity of diamond, combining power and freshness.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright yellow-gold. Enticing aromas of mango, guava, yellow peach, saffron, minerals and honey, complicated by high-toned botrytis. Rich, dense and almost oily, with intense ripe yellow fruit and honey flavors lifted by firm acidity. The finish boasts outstanding length and a bright lemony touch. Scoring Range: 93-96 points

    Elegant nose with sweet white peach, strawberry and vanilla. Medium sweet on the palate with a lovely pure fruit and fine texture. This Barsac is super charming and well balanced. Very spicy on the finish showing wonderful botrytis intensity.

    James Suckling

    A juicy, compact style, with tangerine, apricot, toasted almond and heather notes all rolled together at the core, waiting to unfurl fully through the unctuous, passion fruit-filled finish. Plenty remains in reserve, but this is hard to resist now. Drink now through 2030.

    Wine Spectator

    Denis Dubourdieu’s Barsac cru has an attractive bouquet with subtle notes of cooking apple, pear and lime-flower, all with very fine delineation. The palate displays good weight and a fine thread of acidity, lending tension and poise that leads to a taut finish, showing good botrytis levels for the vintage. With its trademark minerality in place, this Doisy-Daene comes highly recommended.
