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.
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.
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.
Bordeaux 1948: An excellent vintage that had the misfortune to fall between two legendary vintages. Often when Bordeaux has three outstanding vintages in a row, one is often forgotten. The wines have aged extremely well and the best wines still tend to make excellent drinking today. 1948 wines will last for many years to come.
