Tasting Notes

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "A richly liquorous wine, ripe and packed with harmonious sweet textures. At the same time over the ripe structure there is a layer of lively lemon, spice and ginger, spiked with fresh tangerines. The end result is smooth, balanced and vibrant." (03/09) 90 points Stephen Tanzer: "Bright yellow-gold. Good citrus zest lift to the aromas of apricot, orange peel, marzipan and honey. Smooth, sweet and nicely concentrated, with a tactile, chewy quality to the honey and orange blossom flavors. With aeration, this showed a building fruit salad component. A moderately unctuous midweight, with good balancing acidity providing freshness. Spreads out nicely on the lingering finish." (Jun 09) K&L's notes - At Joanne-spicy aromas and flavor. Fine balance. At UGC-a fatter style with fine depth and length. Clean acidity. Very good as usual. *1/2

    The ’06 vintage was not great for Sauternes due to heat and other climatic conditions, but properties who took the time to crop and leaf thin to attain ripe, pure grape fruit made some excellent wine, and this includes Doisy-Védrines. There is a lack of botrytis in this vintage, and with this wine, but it is still wonderfully rich, honeysuckled, succulent and thick on the palate. The nose is perfumed and distinctive, with ripe floral notes and a butterscotch set of aromatics. All the guys have told me that this will be our house sweetie for the month. 13.5% ABV. (Jim Barr)
