    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    The 2022 L'Extravagant de Doisy Daene, 100% Sauvignon Blanc, is pale to medium straw in color. The nose erupts with vibrant grapefruit, lemonade, and lime cordial scents, leading to suggestions of clover honey, chamomile tea, and coriander seed with a waft of chalk dust. The palate is rich, concentrated, and decadent, with beautiful freshness and an epically long finish. An incredible achievement that Denis would be proud of.

    The 2022 L'Extravagant de Doisy-Daëne, pure Sémillon as usual, is deceptively backward on the nose. The action is on the palate: unctuous honeyed fruit counterbalanced by fine acidity, extremely pure with layers of wild peach, apricot, figs and marmalade on the long finish. Despite its power, it comes across with tenderness and grace. Chapeau Jean-Jacques Dubourdieu. It's outrageous in all the best ways.

    Château Doisy Daëne

    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.
