Winemaker Notes

The wine of Doisy-Daëne has a particular style, privileging the brilliance of the fruit concentrated by the "noble rot", nervousness, balance and delicacy of flavors. This style is both the expression a great limestone terroir and a family aesthetic tradition, that of racy white wines, a Diamond purity, combining power and freshness, in an endless youth.

Critical Acclaim

RP97 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Doisy-Daene has a detailed bouquet, very correct, nothing showy or flamboyant as is typical of Denis Dubourdieu's Barsac. The palate is extremely well balanced and very pure: citrus fruit infusing the honeyed botrytis, veins of white peach and quince, leading to a very precise and sustained finish that leaves you with a smile on your face...and the wine ain't even finished yet! Just a wonderful wine - full of class and nascent joie-de-vivre. Chapeau Denis! Barrel Sample: 95-97 Points
 
WE96 Wine Enthusiast
This is opulent and rich, with wonderful gingery spice and layers of acidity and orange zest. The wine is full of pure, clean and ripe fruit flavors. Barrel Sample: 94-96 Points
 
D96 Decanter
Very intense marmalade, lemon, grapefruit, apricot and honey nose. The palate is rich and complex with crisp balancing acidity and reverberating flavours of ginger, tropical fruit and exotic spice. Finishes long with a pleasant citrus fruit aftertaste. Entering peak drinking zone now.
 
JD96 Jeb Dunnuck
Another blockbuster Barsac is the 2015 Château Doisy Daëne from proprietor Denis Dubourdieu. This huge, opulent, awesome wine gives up layers of white peach, caramelized citrus, and white flowers, and stays shockingly pure, polished, and precise on the palate for a wine of this richness and scale. It’s an awesome wine to drink over the coming 2-3 decades.
 
WS95 Wine Spectator
This has nice intensity, with bright verbena, green plum and mirabelle plum notes streaking ahead, backed by more flattering persimmon and creamed yellow apple flavors. A bitter citrus thread gives the finish tension. Nicely done, in the fresher style. Best from 2020 through 2035.
 
JS95 James Suckling
A very fresh and elegant style, but this is no lightweight. Rather, it’s got a long, very focused finish with some minerality that’s really uplifting. I love the bright candied-lemon character on the nose. This is already beautifully balanced, but only just beginning to open up. Should keep for several decades if properly cellared.
