Winery Notes:

Doisy Daëne wine has a style of its own that privileges a bursting fruit concentrated by the "noble rot", strength, balance and subtlety of the flavors. The Doisy-Daëne style is all at once the expression of a great calcareous soil and a truly aesthetic family tradition, the one of distinguished white wines, of crystal-like purity, combining power and freshness, in an infinite youth.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Doisy-Daene has a detailed bouquet, very correct, nothing showy or flamboyant as is typical of Denis Dubourdieu's Barsac. The palate is extremely well balanced and very pure: citrus fruit infusing the honeyed botrytis, veins of white peach and quince, leading to a very precise and sustained finish that leaves you with a smile on your face...and the wine ain't even finished yet! Just a wonderful wine - full of class and nascent joie-de-vivre. Chapeau Denis!

Wine Enthusiast94-96. Barrel Sample. This is opulent and rich, with wonderful gingery spice and layers of acidity and orange zest. The wine is full of pure, clean and ripe fruit flavors.

Wine SpectatorThis has nice intensity, with bright verbena, green plum and mirabelle plum notes streaking ahead, backed by more flattering persimmon and creamed yellow apple flavors. A bitter citrus thread gives the finish tension. Nicely done, in the fresher style. Best from 2020 through 2035. 3,167 cases made.
