Brilliant pale gold straw colour with a pale straw hue. Wonderfully intense aromatics of honeyed peach and dried apricot fills the nostrils followed by some marmalade, a hint of quince and spice. Rich, very concentrated and lusciously textured the palate is saturated with flavours of honeyed peach and dried apricot alongside marmalade, quince, subtle toffee apple and cinnamon spice. Finishes clean and fresh thanks to perfectly balanced acidity. Superb breadth and volume with an exceptionally long and persistent aftertaste of honeyed peach and apricot, marmalade and light cinnamon spice.
Drink over the next 8-10 years.
"Did Barsac confirm its upper hand in 2011? Well, readers should look out for excellent contributions from the likes of Chaeau Doisy-Daene and Chateau Climens, but if I had to pick one wine it would be Chateau Doisy-Vedrines, which achieved one of my top scores (incidentally, a view shared by the rest of the group.) Whereas often this Barsac has a richness and unctuousness that occasionally denudes Olivier Castèja's wine of elegance and precision found elsewhere, the 2011 seems to have successfully incorporated these virtues without compromising its generosity and decadence that we all know and love. Load up on this lovely wine and drink and/or squirrel away as you like..." - Neal Martin
Tasted blind at the Sauternes 2011 horizontal tasting. The Château Doisy-Védrines 2011 has a very fragrant, almost floral bouquet with pure honey, quince and yellow flower scents that soar from the glass and embrace you like your favourite aunt. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous texture and superb acidity that really set this Sauternes alight: real tension and a sense of energy here. It just “flows” toward a vibrant, honeyed finish that has only just begun to “motor." This surpasses its showing from barrel and constitutes a magnificent effort from Olivier Castèja and his team.

Pure, with piercing persimmon, pineapple, white peach and quince flavors. Gorgeous floral notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom form the backdrop, while a heather accent caresses the finish. Overwhelmingly pure in the end, with a finish that sails on and on. Best from 2016 through 2035. 3,500 cases made. –JM
