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.

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.

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.

Still evolving, with lime, verbena and honeysuckle notes and a flash of melon rind on the finish. More backward than most, but shows clear potential. Score range: 89-92 -JM Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Doisy Daene Blanc Sec 750ml

Vibrant with mouthwatering lemon rind bitter grapefruit and chamomile notes flecked with floral and chartreuse hints. Very pure featuring a spine that will hold up to aging. Drink now through 2019. -JM Wine Spectator.

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.

Winemaker's Notes:

"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 beautifully defined with touches of kiwi fruit, green apple and limestone. The palate is mellifluous on the entry, struck through with brilliant acidity, lending it such tension and freshness that is in tune with the vintage. Denis hopes to have nine barrels of this fabulous Barsac...95-97" Neal Martin The Wine Journal erobertparker.com 05/11
