Tasting Notes

The 2010 Doisy-Védrines has a slight adhesive scent on the nose that obscures the fruit profile. Despite rigorous aeration it does dissipate. The palate is clean and pure on the entry. This has a fine bead of acidity with moderate depth, quite harmonious from start to finish with a twist of orange rind towards the finish. It’s just the nose that needs to address its issues. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. 2022 - 2045

Deeper in color than its peers, the Doisy-Vedrines 2010 has an animated bouquet with strong scents of tangerine, pink grapefruit and dried honey, although it is missing some delineation and refinement of one of Olivier Casteja's best vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with a more promising viscous opening of tangy marmalade and quince. It actually improves in the mouth, with a defined and spicy finish. Hopefully, the aromatics will muster something to say with bottle age, as the palate is commendable. Drink now-2028.

The Doisy-Vedrines has a refined bouquet of lemon curd, dried honey and just a touch of quince, perhaps not quite as rich as recent vintages, but very well-defined. The palate is well-balanced, with a touch of lime cordial and passion fruit on the entry, and zesty acidity and impressive precision towards the taut, slightly spicy rich finish. Returning after an hour, this sample has enhanced clarity and volume, and subsequent encounters confirm a very promising Doisy-Vedrines.

Mid gold. Very rich and heady on the nose. Quite exotic and interesting. Subtle and complex. Great weight and great sweetness. A freshness on the finish but green does not dominate this wine. Pear juice with a strong dose of lime juice. RS 145 g/l, TA 3.5 g/l. 13.65%

Lovely vinous nose with more weight and complexity then its neighbour. The palate has very good extract with a long finish and a nice lift on the end. The impression is of a big wine that is light on its feet. Lovely.

There is an attractive mix of fruits on the nose sweet and ripe. The palate appears almost over sweet lots of fleshy apricot, yellow peach and thick cut marmalade but under all of this fleshiness there is enough freshness to balance the richness.

Big body, rich texture, built for long ageing, with a completely different style from Daëne: less immediate purity, more power. Two different visions of terroir but nobody would complain to try both. Drink 2020-2040.
