Château Doisy-Daëne Bordeaux White 2010
"Denis Dubourdieu’s Barsac cru has an attractive bouquet with subtle notes of cooking apple, pear and lime-flower, all with very fine delineation. The palate displays good weight and a fine thread of acidity, lending tension and poise that leads to a taut finish, showing good botrytis levels for the vintage. With its trademark minerality in place, this Doisy-Daene comes highly recommended....92-94" WA 05/11 "This has power in reserve, but relies more on its acidity, with juicy tangerine, clementine, pear and mango notes laced with a hint of green almond. The finish is long, pure and fresh....92-95 (BT)" WS Web Only 2011 "Elegant nose with sweet white peach, strawberry and vanilla. Medium sweet on the palate with a lovely pure fruit and fine texture.

External Reviews for Château Doisy-Daëne Bordeaux White
Light yellow-gold color. Restrained subtle aromas of citrus skin herbs and honey. Silky and pliant with sound acidity framing the bright flavors of orange blossom green fig and melon. Finishes smooth and persistent. -Ian D Agata Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Bright yellow-gold. Enticing aromas of mango guava yellow peach saffron minerals and honey complicated by high-toned botrytis. Rich dense and almost oily with intense ripe yellow fruit and honey flavors lifted by firm acidity. The finish boasts outstanding length and a bright lemony touch. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Offers lots of sweet botrytis character with graham heather honey fig and glazed pear notes followed by an unctuous finish. Mouthfilling with some serious power in reserve. The most backward 2010 Sauternes I ve tasted so far. -JM Wine Spectator.
A juicy, compact style, with tangerine, apricot, toasted almond and heather notes all rolled together at the core, waiting to unfurl fully through the unctuous, passion fruit-filled finish. Plenty remains in reserve, but this is hard to resist now. Drink now through 2030.

With 12.2% alcohol and 212 gms residual sugar, the L'Extravagant de Doisy-Daene consists of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillion. It has a very taut, controlled bouquet that (pardon the expression) is less extravagant than recent vintages, but is be... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Doisy Daene LExtravagant 375ml
Pale straw. Bright, floral pear and apricot aromas, complicated by mineral and caramel notes. Bright and fresh on entry, then viscous in the middle, with sweet ripe orange marmalade and apricot flavors dominating. Finishes clean and long, with hints of green and white pepper. This has a lovely refined texture, but I often wonder if Doisy-Daene is robbed of a bit of concentration and richness in the years when owner Denis Dubourdieu makes his premium special bottling called L’Extravagant. I find this to be more true in this vintage than in 2009, when L’Extravagant was also made.
