Description

"92-95 Wine Spectator 93-95 Jeannie Cho Lee MW94 Tim Atkin MW92-94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate93-94+ Jane Anson"Denis Dubourdieu's Barsac cru has an attractive bouquet with subtle notes of cooking apple, pear and lime-flower, all with very fine delineation. The palate displays good weight and a fine thread of acidity, lending tension and poise that leads to a taut finish, showing good botrytis levels for the vintage. With its trademark minerality in place, this Doisy-Daene comes highly recommended." Robert Parker's Wine AdvocateChâteau Doisy-Daëne is a Barsac estate that produces top-class, sweet Bordeaux white wines that are characterized by their finesse and richness. The property is owned by Denis Dubourdieu, a legendary figure in Bordeaux wine circles, The wines from the best vintages can age gracefully for up to 20 years.
