Château Doisy-Daëne:
Château Doisy-Daëne, a second classified growth in 1855, has been in the Dubourdieu family since 1924. Three generations of passionate wine growers have worked here from father to son. Georges bought the property and increased its reputation due to the legendary vintages until 1945. Pierre, the creator of great wines for more than fifty years, modernised and enhanced Doisy-Daëne.

Château Doisy-Daëne, a second classified growth in 1855, has been in the Dubourdieu family since 1924. Three generations of passionate wine growers have worked here from father to son. Georges bought the property and increased its reputation due to the legendary vintages until 1945. Pierre, the creator of great wines for more than fifty years, modernised and enhanced Doisy-Daëne. Denis, who is both professor at Bordeaux's Faculty of Oenology and a well-known Oenology Consultant, succeeded him from the 2000 vintage. The expression of great calcareous terroir and of a truly aesthetical family tradition, the style of Doisy-Daëne associates richness and freshness. It privileges the burst of the fruit, concentrated by "the noble rot", the raciness, the balance and the finesse. Doisy-Daëne also produces, since the beginning of the 1950s a great dry white wine, distinguished and very original. Read less

Masses of crushed grape, honey and hints of clove and nutmeg. Full-bodied, very sweet and very lively, with lots of acidity and spicy fruit. Long and flavorful, with loads of passion fruit flavor. Best after 2012. 3,750 cases made. -JS Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Doisy Daene 3000ml

Pale yellow-gold. Deep, brooding, nobly rotten aromas of apricot, pineapple, spices, honey, truffle and game. Fat, thick and honeyed, with a softer and more unctuous texture than the 2007. But the exhilarating notes of musky brown spices give a magically light touch to the palate-staining fruit flavors of pineapple syrup and apricot. Finishes wonderfully sweet and long, with a texture of liquid silk.

On the nose, elegant notes of cardamon and minerals blend with generous aromas of candied pineapple, salted caramel and spicy soft florals. On the palate, fresh tropical fruits and spring honey balance with mineral character and structure. Glossy tex... Elizabeth Becker.
