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.

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 DAgata Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Bordeaux Blanc wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Doisy Daene Blanc Sec 750ml

Super bright and fresh, the nose exhibits aromas of lemon and orange peel, intermixed with tropical fruit, followed by botrytis spice and toasted coconut. Very rich and f... Geoffrey Binder.

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 Ive tasted so far. -JM Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Doisy Daene LExtravagant 375ml

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

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
