Tasting Notes

Denis Dubourdieu has a created a fine Doisy-Daene, with attractive white peach and honeysuckle on the precise bouquet, which exudes wonderful transparency. The palate is very well-defined with fine acidity, the oak deftly integrated. It gradually builds in the mouth: harmonious and refined with great composure towards the long and satisfying finish. This is one of the finest Barsac wines of the vintage.

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (212), May 2014

A tight and compressed young Sauternes with masses of botrytis spice character of white pepper and mushroom dust. Dried apples and lemons. Full body, yet agile and lively. Sweet yet fresh finish. Structured young Sauternes. Drink in 2020.

This Barsac has been a very consistent performer in recent years. Pale gold in colour, with notes of orange blossom and honeyed citrus on the nose. The palate is rich and opulent but balance again by the characteristic fresh acidity of 2013 sweet wines. Pure ripe peach and dried apricots, and a long, honey and marmalade finish.

Farr Vintners, April 2014

The nose has a lovely mix of fruits rich ripe apricot some candied citrus peel and slightly fresher tropical fruits. Rich and fleshy on the start of the palate the mid palate is lighter yet there is richness at the back with fleshy depth on the finish.
