Tasting Notes

"Candid fruits and blossom with a gooded honeyed richness. A very pretty sweet wine." Xenia Irwin MW, Waitrose Partner & Wine Buyer

"Rich and firm, with great concentration, this wine is powered by botrytis, honey and the ripest yellow fruit and bitter orange flavors. It promises a great future, with power and richness balanced by acidity." Wine Enthusiast

Château Doisy-Védrines

Château Doisy-Védrines,the largest of the three Doisy estates in Barsac it was bought in 1946 the Castéja family who also four other estates including Batailley and Trotte Vieille and a negociant company.

Doisy-Védrines's 27 hectares of vineyards are situated on the highest plateau in Barsac (although they prefer to - legally - use Sauternes on the label) and are planted with 80% Sémillon, 15% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle.

The grapes are picked in several 'tries' and the yields are expensively low, even by Sauternes standards, as they aim for highest quality. Fermentation starts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats for around a week before the must is transferred to 60% new oak barriques to complete. The wine matures in barrique for 18-20 months.

Doisy-Védrines is one of the fullest and richest style wines in Barsac and typically needs between 5 and 25 years to show at its best.
