    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Château Doisy Daëne, 2ème Cru Classé, Barsac, 2005

    The usual floral notes on the nose, coupled with lime marmalade and botrytised fruit; on the palate there is great freshness and elegance, and a long delicate finish. A decidedly terroir-based, feminine and seductive wine from Denis Dubourdieu, the leading white wine œnologist in Bordeaux.

    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    Medium to deep straw-gold in color, the 2005 Doisy Daene shoots forth with pronounced lime jelly, lemon marmalade, and dried mango scents plus hints of caramel waffles, shortbread, and hazelnut butter. Concentrated and powerful in the mouth, it delivers loads of savory and nut layers with a long, honeyed finish.

    Good full, bright yellow. Honey and marzipan on the rather stunted nose. Then supersweet, dense and tactile, but with the ripe pineapple and marzipan flavors currently muted by sulfur dioxide. Shows the power of the vintage but will need time to express itself.

    Château Doisy Daëne

    Château Doisy-Daëne is Second Cru Classé winery located in Barsac within the Sauternes appellation. The estate has been in the Dubourdieu family since 1924. For over eighty years three generations of vine growers have exercised talents to produce great sweet white wines : Georges (1924-1948), Pierre (1949-1999) and Denis since 2000. The vineyards are planted on soils that consist of red sand and clay with limestone with 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc varietals. On average, the vines at Doisy-Daëne are 35 years of age. The wines are typically deep, rich and vibrant and usually sell out en primeur – an unusual feat amongst the estates of Sauternes.
