Chateau Doisy-Daene 2013

A sweet Sauternes wine with a seductive vivacity and freshness

The estate

Located in Barsac, in the Sauternes appellation, Château Doisy-Daëne has belonged to the Dubourdieu family since 1924. Managed by three generations of winegrowers, this 1855 Second Cru Classé enjoys an exceptional terroir and produces sweet wines that are poised among the greatest wines of Bordeaux. Denis Dubourdieu has been at the helm of the estate since 2000.

The vineyard

Château Doisy-Daëne is located on the terroir of the Barsac plateau. This area is characterised by its unique geological formation. There is a thin layer of clayey sands called "the red sands of Barsac" which rest on limestone subsoils. This porous limestone helps to regulate the vine’s water supply by releasing the water stored throughout the winter season. This Barsac wine stands out due to its exceptional finesse.

Vinification and ageing

The production of Château Doisy-Daëne sweet wines involves a rigorous harvest carried out by experienced grape-pickers with 3 to 6 rounds, enabling the grapes that have developed the famous "noble rot" to be picked at the best time. The juice is then extracted by slow pressing before fermentation in oak barrels. The initial 10 months of barrel ageing, with weekly topping up and regular racking, is followed by a further 9 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.

The blend

Semillon (90%)
Sauvignon Blanc (9%)

Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
