Marks and reviews
Château Doisy-Daëne has belonged to the Dubourdieu family since 1924. Supported by three generations of winegrowers, this Second Cru Classé in 1855 with its exceptional terroir produces sweet wines that are recognised among the greatest wines of Bordeaux. Denis Dubourdieu has been at the head of the estate since 2000.
Château Doisy-Daëne is a Barsac wine made from a vineyard located on the plateau of the appellation. This area is characterised by its singular geological formation. There is a thin layer of clayey sands called "les sables rouges du barsacais" which rest on limestone subsoils. This porous limestone helps to regulate the water supply to the vines by releasing the water stored during the winter. The wines of Château Doisy-Daëne are therefore distinguished by their exceptional finesse.
Winemaking and ageing
The production of Château Doisy-Daëne's sweet wines involves a meticulous harvest carried out by experienced pickers, going around 3 to 6 times to allow the grapes that have developed the famous "noble rot" to be picked at the most favourable moment. The juices are then extracted by slow pressing before fermentation in oak barrels renewed by quarter. The wine is aged for an initial period of 10 months in barrels, followed by 9 months in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
Sauvignon Blanc (5%)
This Barsac wine unveils a subtle combination of freshness, vivacity, power and a fruity, concentrated framework with a lovely richness.
