This has phenolic tension and power with so much dried fruit character from pineapple to mango. Full, medium sweet and lively. Really excellent.
The 2015 Doisy-Vedrines has quite an intense nose, perhaps less fat and honeyed than recent vintages, more finesse if not quite capturing the same level of details as the Doisy-Daëne this year. The palate is very promising with layers of honeyed fruit tinged with white chocolate and almond, a lovely swagger about this Doisy-Vedrines that reminds me of great vintages such as 1989. Always well priced, you won't harm your cellar with a case of Olivier Castèja's sumptuous Barsac. (NM)
Barrel Sample. This is a fragrant, fruity wine. It has dried apricot and bitter orange flavors along with plenty of acidity. The texture is tangy, hinting at minerality, while the aftertaste is what brings out the sweetness and final richness of the wine. (RV)
Richer in style than the typical Barsac, with notes of almond cream and orange curd along with honeysuckle, white peach and toasted pineapple flavors. The long, unctuous finish lets the almond hint linger longest. (JM)
The 2015 Doisy-Védrines is delicate, floral and beautifully lifted. Finely sketched and nuanced, the wine is pure class. White flowers, pineapple, apricot and candied citrus are all finely knit. From barrel, the 2015 was a bit more opulent, but today, from bottle, the impression is of a Sauternes that is light on its feet and quite sensual. (AG)
Reticent aromas of sweet spices, mango and crystallised ginger emerge slowly with aeration. Rich, dense and tactile, with honeyed tropical fruit, lively lemon and spicy tangerine flavours. Some noble rot, but passerillage (dried grapes) present. From 35-year-old vines, and made with a rare 5% Muscadelle.
Pale lemon. Less distinct than the Ch Doisy-Daëne. Correct and a bit spindly but grainy and textured. Good but not great. 17/20
