Doisy Daene Lextravagant Sauternes Blend Wine 2010

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

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

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

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
