Description

Doisy Daëne wine has a style of its own that privileges a bursting fruit concentrated by the "noble rot", strength, balance and subtlety of the flavors. The Doisy-Daëne style is all at once the expression of a great calcareous soil and a truly aesthetic family tradition, the one of distinguished white wines, of crystal-like purity, combining power and freshness, in an infinite youth. - Winemaker's Notes

The 2004 Doisy-Daene had a peculiar showing, one that certainly has not reached the heights of previous bottles. It has a straightforward gooseberry and white flower-scented nose that is missing some depth and penetration. The palate is better, with an appealing, caressing entry of tangerine, apricot and marmalade, though it needs more tension toward the finish, which is content to doggie paddle rather than front crawl. This just seems a little, flightlessî to what I was expecting. Drink now-2020. - WA88

The Winery

Chateau Doisy Daene, Second's Cru Classe in 1855, located in Barsac in the Sauternes appellation, 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.

Doisy Daene produces a great Sauternes wine along with distinguished and unusual dry white Bordeaux: Grand Vin Sec du Chateau Doisy-Daene. During the great vintages, Doisy-Daene produces a famous and rare cuvee of unequaled richness: L'Extravagant.
