Doisy Daene Barsac Sauternes l'Extravagence 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

"Lots of lemon and maple syrup on the nose, with dried apricots. Full-bodied, with a very sweet and rich palate of candied lemon and orange rinds and a long finish. Not quite as exciting as from barrel, but clearly outstanding…93." WS 6/04.

Château Coutet:
The fine wines from Chateau Coutet are concentrated and sweet with high levels of acidity to balance out the sweetness. While the wines are delicious when young, the true nature of an excellent Barsac like Chateau Coutet is only shown when the wines have many years of bottle age.

The fine wines from Chateau Coutet are concentrated and sweet with high levels of acidity to balance out the sweetness. While the wines are delicious when young, the true nature of an excellent Barsac like Chateau Coutet is only shown when the wines have many years of bottle age. These wines gain complexity and a lushness after a good vintage is stored for a decade or so. Coutet is especially known for the complex aromas it develops. It is important that storage conditions be proper for the life of the wine. Chateau Coutet is known for producing a very elegant and stylish dessert wine. It is rich and full bodied and has the aromas and flavors of stone fruits like peaches when young. The flavors of the young wine develop into a complex fabric of vanilla, honey and cinnamon after years of age. Recent vintages have shown very strong results. Read less

Subdued but pure aromas of mirabelle, peach, pear and pineapple; hints at a roasted botrytis ripeness. Then fat and rich in the mouth, with a captivating flavor of roasted peach. Impressively broad and oily but not yet filled in. Very suave, somewhat... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Coutet 750ml

...There is only a tiny amount of the light gold/green-colored 2001 Doisy-Daene l'Extravagant (primarily Sauvignon Blanc). As the name suggests, it is extravagantly rich as well as very full-bodied with extraordinary purity and intensity. The finish ... Robert Parker. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2001 Doisy Daene L'Extravagant 375ml

Subdued but pure aromas of mirabelle peach pear and pineapple; hints at a roasted botrytis ripeness. Then fat and rich in the mouth with a captivating flavor of roasted peach. Impressively broad and oily but not yet filled in. Very suave somewhat youthfully understated Barsac and not at all overly honeyed today or dominated by its oak component... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
