91Wine Spectator

A fresh, pure, driven style, with gorgeous honeysuckle and acacia notes leading the way for Cavaillon melon, Jonagold apple and glazed pear notes. The long finish really sings. Very pretty.

90The Wine Advocate

...the palate demonstrates great balance and the trademark Doisy-Vedrines richness and viscosity, with clear honey, apricot, Clementine and a touch of spice intermingling on the very focused, succinct finish.


France, Bordeaux, Sauternes, Barsac

Sauternes makes the world’s most famous dessert wines. Though the appellation lies within the Graves region of Bordeaux’s left bank, the appellation makes only sweet wines from white grapes, primarily Semillon sometimes blended with small amounts of Muscadelle. The five communes within Sauternes are Barsac, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Sauternes. Barsac also has its own appellation and, typically, Barsac wines are slightly drier and lighter than other Sauternes. Sauternes are made when weather conditions result in a mold called Botrytis cinerea developing on the grapes, which causes them to become especially sweet. Sauternes are not produced every vintage, so successful vintages become especially collectible. Sauternes estates were classified in 1855, and Château d’Yquem, the appellation’s most prestigious estate, was ranked in a class by itself as a Premier Grand Cru. Château d’Yquem wines are among the most prized wines in the world.
