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

100% Sauvignon Blanc from a Chateau that is renown for its botrytis stickies belonging to the family of the brilliant Prof Denis Dubourdieu. There is some oak treatment and the effects are clearly evident. Very pale lemon with a slight half shade of green. On the nose it is med+ – intense, developing aromas of dill sauteeing in butter, soft red apple and pamelo. A dry, full-bodied wine with plenty of racy acidity. Slightly grassy, it has rich vibrant flavours of pinklady apple, grapefruit and lemon rind. Creamy texture. Long salivating finish. Perfect for grilled fish or poached chicken. Drink now – 2015. 91/100.

Denis Dubourdieu has provided one of the genuine stars of the vintage with the Chateau Doisy-Daene, two, if you count his Extravagance. This has a very fragrant nose with apple blossom, lime leaf and a touch of honey. Very fresh and lifted...spring-l... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Full bright yellow-gold. Discreet but ripe aromas of apricot apple pie marzipan and honey. Sweet suave and juicy with laser-like precision and purity to the fruit cocktail honey and saffron flavors. Offers an exhilarating combination of silky texture and sheer intensity displaying a strong clean botrytis presence. Finishes very long and mineral with superb freshness thanks to the high proportion of sauvignon blanc in the blend. This should evolve gracefully in bottle for decades. There

There are probably around seven casks of the 2009 L Extravagant de Doisy-Daene although that may decrease a little after racking. An equal blend of Semillon and Sauvignon it delivers a record 220gms residual sugar and yet still exudes astounding minerality and precision with touches of clear honey frangipane and cold wet stones. The palate is full-bodied with a mellifluous texture perfect acidity to slice through that rich botrytized fruit stunning balance citrus peel apricot Clementine lemon curd and a hint of ginger. With awesome length leaving that tingling sensation akin to Szechuan pepper this wine truly lives up to its name. -Neal Martin Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
