Product Description

“The Château Doisy-Daëne 2014 is bestowed with 144 grams per liter residual sugar and a pH of 3.7. It is much more introspective compared to the Coutet at the moment, perhaps because of less residual, but it is fragrant and ethereal with wild honey, yellow flower and orange blossom scents developing with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with superb tension and fruit intensity on the entry. It is more linear than recent vintages, minerally with a lovely twist of sour lemon imparting tension and vivacity on the crystalline finish. This is a fabulous Doisy-Daëne from Denis Dubourdieu.” Wine Advocate 95-97 Points

“White orchard fruit, mint, lime, apricot and sweet floral notes all blossom in the 2014 Doisy-Daëne. Finessed and nuanced on the palate, with expressive mineral notes underpinning the fruit, the wine exudes balance and class. This is a tremendous showing from the late Denis Dubourdieu.” Vinous 96 Points

“While the texture is rich, the flavors are muted at this stage. It does have an opulent character that will develop to give ripe yellow fruit tones. Rich in nature, a vein of acidity runs under all this concentration. It will need time to develop and will age slowly.” Wine Enthusiast 94-96 Points

“Creamed pineapple, yellow apple and ginger notes form the core here, which has ample weight but moves gracefully, as orange zest and elderflower honey details stream underneath. A bitter citrus oil accent hangs on the finish for a long time. Has a lot of power for a Barsac.” Wine Spectator 95 Points

“This shows lots of dried fruits and intensity. Full body, medium sweetness and a long, flavorful finish. Plenty of dried fruit character. Very dense.” James Suckling 90-91 Points
