Description

2000 Chateau Doisy-Vedrines is lacking a little freshness and fruit intensity on the nose. There are aromas of cold stone and a touch of apple and grapefruit, although they are not particularly engaging. The palate is better, medium-bodied, moderate fruit intensity with light honeyed, apricot-tinged fruit. It has decent acidity but it lacks weight and complexity on the finish, feels clipped. - WS88

The Winery

Barsac has lived for centuries in pace with wine. The stones of the walls bordering the vineyards were quarried, long ago, from the pebbly and clayey-limestone land which constitutes the "noble soils" of the commune. Alongside Chateau Climens and Chateau Coutet, in the finest vine-growing area of the commune, once called "Haut-Barsac", one of the oldest estates of the region is to be found : Chateau Doisy Vedrines.

This noble manor and its vineyards were one called Doizic, and in the middle of the 17th century, belonged to Jean Raymond, a Registrar with the Guyenne Borard of Excice. Although a resident of Bordeaux, in February 1677 he pledged "fealty and allegiance" to the king for this noble estate and fief of Doisy situated between Preignac and Barsac in the county of the Gironde. In June 1704, the land and its buildings were included in the dowry of his grand-daughter and god-daughter, Marie Raymond. On June 5, 1704, in the presence of Guillaume Roborel, court barrister and representative of the king at the royal seat in the parish of Barsac, as well as of the dignitaries of the village, she married Jean-Baptiste Vedrines, court barrister and son of Jean Vedrines, also court barrister and judge at Sainte-Livrade in the Agen region. Hence, the fief of Doisy became Doisy-Vedrines.

It is against my better judgment to taste the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes at such an early age, as I find they typically require at least 12 months to reveal the definition/delineation so essential in these...
