2010 Chateau Doisy Vedrines Barsac
Reviewed by: Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate - 91-93pts.
"Thick and spicy, with unctuous, still slightly raw-seeming layers of apricot, peach and fig. Ginger cream and green tea check in on the finish. Rather backward still, but there's lots balled up."

"Bright straw-gold. Spectacular, intense, exotic botrytized nose is redolent of honeyed yellow peach, apricot and saffron. Then very sweet in the mouth, with concentrated flavors of dried peach, ginger and honey lifted by bright acidity. The finish is long and polished, featuring persistent peach, honey and white pepper nuances."

-Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate, 91 to 93 pts.
"A very ripe, juicy, spicy style, with bold apricot, tangerine, toasted almond and papaya notes. Shows lots of power, with the length to match. A winner in the making."

"Packed, with dense, creamy layers of glazed pear and green fig, tarte Tatin, marmalade and almond cream. Despite its weight, this brings you back over and over thanks to its well-embedded acidity. Impressive and very long. Seems the new owner (Silvio Denz) is off to a good start here."

Reviewed by: Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast - 93-95pts
"This is almost formed already, with lovely mouthfeel to the ginger cream, toasted hazelnut, orange curd, flan, apricot and glazed peach flavors. Long and refined, despite some very serious power in reserve. Great showing today."

"Still youthfully rambunctious, balanced by a terrific core of peach, apricot, mango and toasted almond flavors, with crystalized ginger, tangerine and quince notes. The long finish delivers serious power and freshness.—Tasted non-blind."
2013 Chateau Doisy Daene Sauternes (Futures)
Reviewed by: Wine Spectator - 93-96pts
"Denis Dubourdieu has a created a fine Doisy-Daene, with attractive white peach and honeysuckle on the precise bouquet, which exudes wonderful transparency. The palate is very well-defined with fine acidity, the oak deftly integrated. It gradually builds in the mouth: harmonious and refined with great composure towards the long and satisfying finish. This is one of the finest Barsac wines of the vintage."

"Ripe, unctuous, rounded style, with lots of orange cream, almond, heather and ginger notes backed by hazelnut and tangerine. Long, powerful finish should really stretch out."
