The Story

Doisy-Daëne produces a great Sauternes wine along with distinguished and unusual dry white Bordeaux: Grand Vin Sec du Château Doisy-Daëne.

During the great vintages, Doisy-Daëne produces a famous and rare cuvée of unequaled richness: L'Extravagant.

White vineyard

Replanted in its vast majority between the 50's and 60's, the Doisy-Daene vineyard is over forty years old. It is currently 18,2hectares wide. With a density of 7,000 plants per hectare, it is planted with 86 % Sémillon and 14 % Sauvignon.

Viticulture

Traditional ploughing is performed on the soil of our vineyard and no weed-killer is used. Organic manures are made with vegetal-based composts. Bud removal, trellising and leaf removal are carefully done by hand. We are engaged in a process of abandonment of the use of chemical synthetic pesticides on all of our vineyards.

Thus "grown like in a garden", within an orderly and well preserved environment, our vines produce early concentrated tasty grapes which have the smoothness and brightness of fresh fruit aromas we wish to obtain in our wines.In an effort to balance our carbon footprint, we manage as well a forest area equal in size to our vineyards.

Written Notes

Doisy Daëne - big one, lot of everything like sweetness of fruit and acidity, complexity, structure and length. Finishes with acacia honey flavor. 94p
  • 94p
Intense yellow colour with green hue. Slightly closed character on the nose, citrus fruit, lime-zest, candied lemon-peel, hints of tropical fruit. On the palate well structured with good balance of acidity and sweetness, fresh acidity, succulent fruit and convincing length.
  • 94p
Medium pale colour. Lemon grapefruit pith honey aromas with savoury oak notes. Well concentrated wine with honey lemon glacé flavours, superb viscosity and ginger oak flavours. Finishes chalky with plenty of lemon glacé notes. Some al dente, bitter, tonic water notes add to the complexity and interest. Bloody good. 96 points
