The second wine of Doisy Vedrines is a J&B favourite. The 2016 boasts plenty of botrytis flavours: notes of honeysuckle, pineapple, pain perdu and citrus rind. The palate is unctuous and mouthcoating, with this lovely seam of acidity and salinity that keeps this bright and focussed.
Doisy-Védrines is a 2ème Cru Classé Sauternes which belongs to the long-established Castéja wine family, and remains relatively little known by most wine lovers, due mainly to tiny production levels. The wines are renowned for their relative intensity and richness compared to Doisy-Daëne next door, but they are nevertheless far from being a heavyweight by the standards of the appellation. Their second wine, Petit-Védrines, is an exceptional value.
