    The purity and complexity of a fine sweet wine from Sauternes

    The estate
    Located in Barsac, in the Sauternes appellation, Chateau Doisy-Daëne has belonged to the Dubourdieu family since 1924. Led by three generations of winegrowers and boasting an exceptional terroir, this Classified Second Growth of 1855 produces sweet wines recognized as one of the greatest wines of Bordeaux. Since 2000, Denis Dubourdieu has been at the helm of the property.

    The vineyard
    Chateau Doisy-Daëne is situated on the Barsac plateau. This area is characterized by a unique geological formation. There is a thin layer of clayey sand referred to as "the red sands of the barsacais" which rest upon limestone subsoils. This porous limestone traps the rainfall during the winter and makes it available for the vines later on in the growing season. This contributes to the exceptional finesse of the wines from Chateau Doisy-Daëne.

    The winemaking
    The fine dessert wines of Chateau Doisy-Daëne are made possible by a very meticulous harvest carried out by experienced pickers through 3 to 6 passages. These different sortings make it possible to harvest the grapes with just the right amount of noble rot. The juices are then extracted by a slow pressing, before fermentation in oak barrels, which are renewed quarterly.

    The aging
    10 months in barrel, followed by 9 months of aging in stainless steel tanks before bottling.

    The blend
    100% Semillon.

    Tasting
    Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau Doisy-Daëne 2019 reveals a pale yellow color. The aromatic bouquet seduces with its intensity, purity and complexity. This sun-kissed wine packs the palate with its tasty and suave texture, while maintaining a beautiful freshness in its fruit and great length on the finish. A superb Barsac, which will evolve gracefully over the years. To taste from 2022 onwards or age until 2050 for those who are more patient.
