Château Doisy-Daëne Bordeaux Sec 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

“The 1996 l'Extravagant is pure Sauvignon Blanc. It boasts a deep gold color, in addition to an unctuous texture, fabulous freshness, and notes of grapefruit and subtle oak (the 200% new oak treatment is utilized for the whopping 100-125 cases produced). A huge wine, with lots of acidity and little mass and volume, this tour de force in wine making should drink well for 50+ years. Readers should note that this offering is only available in one-bottle wood cases! Anticipated maturity: 2007-2050+…98.” WA #122

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
