Reticent aromas of sweet spices, mango and crystallised ginger emerge slowly with aeration. Rich, dense and tactile, with honeyed tropical fruit, lively lemon and spicy tangerine flavours. Some noble rot, but passerillage (dried grapes) present. From 35-year-old vines, and made with a rare 5% Muscadelle.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel Sample. This is a fragrant, fruity wine. It has dried apricot and bitter orange flavors along with plenty of acidity. The texture is tangy, hinting at minerality, while the aftertaste is what brings out the sweetness and final richness of the wine.

Wine SpectatorRicher in style than the typical Barsac, with notes of almond cream and orange curd along with honeysuckle, white peach and toasted pineapple flavors. The long, unctuous finish lets the almond hint linger longest. Best from 2020 through 2040.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Doisy-Vedrines has quite an intense nose, perhaps less fat and honeyed than recent vintages, more finesse if not quite capturing the same level of details as the Doisy-Daëne this year. The palate is very promising with layers of honeyed fruit tinged with white chocolate and almond, a lovely swagger about this Doisy-Vedrines that reminds me of great vintages such as 1989. Always well priced, you won't harm your cellar with a case of Olivier Castèja's sumptuous Barsac.

James SucklingA prototypical Sauternes with tons of marzipan and candied-orange character. A great balance of that with full sweetness, well-judged oak and enough acidity to give a clean, long finish.
