Aroma: Slight honeysuckle
Taste: A seductive texture carries flavors of candied citrus, slight honey and floral flavors with a bright, long finish.
Food Pairing: A food-friendly sauterenes that does well with blue cheese and pate. Easily enjoyed alone after a meal as well.
Additional Information: Doisy-Védrines's 27 hectares of vineyards are situated on the highest plateau in Barsac and are planted with 80% Sémillon, 15% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle. The grapes are picked in several "tries" and the yields are painfully low, even by Sauternes standards. Fermentation starts in temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats for around a week before the must is transferred to 100% new oak barriques. The wine remains in barrique for 18-20 months. Doisy-Védrines is one of the richest and most full-bodied wines in Barsac and it significantly uses the Sauternes AC rather than the Barsac one. It needs at least 5 years of bottle ageing and the best vintages will keep for up to 25 years.
