Description

Château Doisy Daëne has been in family hands since 1924 and is one of the most ambitiously and innovatively run estates in Bordeaux, Doisy Daëne produces a very fine wine Barsac that seems to be undervalued in the scheme of Barsac/Sauternes realities.

The owner, Denis Bourdieu, more than anyone else has totally revolutionized the making of white wine in the Bordeaux Region with his classic maceration pelliculaire.

    Really enjoyable. Nose has pronounced honeycomb and honey. The palate is luscious and rich with citrus notes.

The 2018 Doisy-Daëne is effusive and intensely aromatic right from the start. Sweet floral notes, baked apple tart, pineapple and mint abound. Bright and beautifully lifted, with terrific presence and plenty of richness, Doisy-Daëne is simply fabulous in 2018. Time in the glass brings out its textured, resonant personality nicely. All I can say is it takes an extraordinary amount of discipline to leave the 2018 behind in the setting of a professional tasting, as it is the sort of wine I would much rather drink over the course of many hours.
95/100 - Antonio Galloni, Vinous (Tasted March 2021)

The 2018 Doisy-Daëne has a well-defined bouquet, a little reticent at first but opening to offer scents of wild honey, white flowers and orange blossom. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe, viscous opening, very pure and full of tension, more so than other 2018 Sauternes/Barsacs. Very persistent on the finish. This is an excellent Doisy-Daëne.
95/100 - Neal Martin, Vinous (Tasted March 2021)
