Like the 2005 Doisy-Védrines, the 2002 really showed well at this tasting and was a most delicious example for immediate drinking pleasure. The fine bouquet offers up a stylish mélange of pineapple, honey, orange, soil tones and buttery oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, crisp and shows fine mid-palate depth, with fine framing acids, impressive complexity and very good length and grip on the finish. 2002 is hardly a legendary vintage for Sauternes, but the 2002 Doisy-Védrines is a delicious bottle for drinking now or over the next twenty years or more. Lovely juice. (Drink between 2009-2025).
Pale, green-tinged color. Pure, floral, very fresh aromas of lime, apricot, honeysuckle, clove and coconut. Sweet and succulent, with terrific minerally grip giving firmness to the apricot, honey and spiceflavors. Clean, complex wine. This is 13.8% alcohol, with 128 grams of residual sweetness and 4.3 grams acidity. Should make a perfect aperitif. (ST)
Spicy and rich, with lots of apple pie and cream character. Full-bodied, medium sweet, with lots of caramel and almond character. Long finish. Outstanding intensity. Better than the 2003. Best after 2009. (JS)
Bright greenish gold. Quite serious. Some botrytis influence and some weight. Very heavy and subtle with strong botrytis layers and really impressive undertow of sweetness before a neat, powerful finish. Very, very sweet as it hits the palate. Really quite outstanding for its weight of ripe fruit. Great persistence. 17+/20 points. (JR)
