Château Doisy-Daëne Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"This has two sides for now—a rich apricot, melon and creamed apple side, along with a brisker clementine, green fig and kiwifruit side. Delivers power and snap, richness and vibrancy. When they come together, this should be a winner...91" WS Web Only 2011 "Tasted single blind against its peers.

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
