TASTING NOTES

Pale to medium lemon-gold in color, the 2018 Doisy-Vedrines gives up bold notes of warm pineapple, baked pears and spice cake with nuances of orange blossoms, toasted almonds and baking bread. The palate provides a great intensity of tropical and citrus flavors with a racy line of freshness and long, spicy finish.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, Wine Advocate (April 2019)
(90—92)/100

The balance is extremely good, between richly textured stone fruits and plenty of grip, with poise and lift. The limestone and red clay soils of Barsac have really helped here, where the grapes were able to keep their freshness even while the botrytis took its time to install. 37% new oak was used. A yield of 10.5hl/ha.

A little syrupy, but some attractive sweetness and it’s a little spicy. Full-bodied. Oily texture at the end.
