The 2015 Doisy-Daene has a detailed bouquet, very correct, nothing showy or flamboyant as is typical of Denis Dubourdieu's Barsac. The palate is extremely well balanced and very pure: citrus fruit infusing the honeyed botrytis, veins of white peach and quince, leading to a very precise and sustained finish that leaves you with a smile on your face...and the wine ain't even finished yet! Just a wonderful wine - full of class and nascent joie-de-vivre. Chapeau Denis! (NM)
Another blockbuster Barsac is the 2015 Château Doisy Daëne from proprietor Denis Dubourdieu. This huge, opulent, awesome wine gives up layers of white peach, caramelized citrus, and white flowers, and stays shockingly pure, polished, and precise on the palate for a wine of this richness and scale. It’s an awesome wine to drink over the coming 2-3 decades.
Wow. This is really impressive with a fabulous density and style. So much mushroom, almond and dried apple, apricot character. Fresh and bright. Joyous.
This is opulent and rich, with wonderful gingery spice and layers of acidity and orange zest. The wine is full of pure, clean and ripe fruit flavors. (RV)
Vivid and beautifully textured in the glass, the 2015 Doisy Daëne simply exudes class. Apricot, orange peel, spice, wild flowers and hints of sweet oak vanillin shape this generous, deeply expressive Sauternes. Even with all of its intensity and depth, the 2015 remains pliant, supple and light on its feet. The 2015 is a striking Doisy-Daëne endowed with pedigree to burn. (AG)
Bright sparkling flavours here, the luscious richness well balanced with lime zest, saffron and citrus. It will suit lovers of botrytis-rich Sauternes without going over the top. Very good. (JA)
This has nice intensity, with bright verbena, green plum and mirabelle plum notes streaking ahead, backed by more flattering persimmon and creamed yellow apple flavors. A bitter citrus thread gives the finish tension. Nicely done, in the fresher style. Best from 2020 through 2035. (JM)
Lovely and lifted. More acidity than many but really rather beautiful and fresh. Clean and fresh as a mountain stream. Polished. Very different style from Ch Coutet -- lighter and fresher -- but very good. 18/20 points. (JR)
