The Richesse and Elegance of an Exceptional Sauternes Grand Cru de Sauternes

Product of quite the prodigious vintage for sweet wines, the Chateau Doisy-Vedrines 2017 promises to be a great vintage indeed, already displaying the style of a Cru that is among the elite of Barsac.

A Grand Cru Classe by the official 1855 classification of Sauternes and Barsac wines, Chateau Doisy-Vedrines manages a superb vineyard, planted on the clay-limestone ridge of Haut-Barsac, in the south-east of the Bordeaux.

Blessed with an exceptional terroir, the vines are cultivated with extreme care, favoring very low yields and selective sorting (in 3 to 4 passes for the 2017 vintage). All these elements come together to make the Chateau Doisy-Vedrines an emblematic property for the sweet wines of Bordeaux.

The early harvest began on September 21st and ended on October 13th, requiring rigorous plot selection for a yield limited to 6hl / ha, due to frosts that occurred during two nights at the end of April.

Produced from this delicate vintage, the Chateau Doisy-Vedrines 2017 is brilliant, revealing the expression of all the grape varieties making up the blend (95% of Semillon, complemented by 5% of Sauvignon blanc and Muscadelle). The profile of this wine exudes the aromatic intensity of the fruit, with an ample mouth revealing a superb texture, in which the juicy fruit expresses itself in with a balance between sugar and acidity. The Chateau Doisy-Vedrines 2017 reveals itself to be a sure value among the sweet wines of Sauternes.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Doisy-Vedrines gives up pretty lime cordial and lemon pie notes with a touch of mandarin peel and hints of chalk dust and ginger ale. The palate features super intense citrus fruit with great purity and depth, matched by wonderful freshness and a long finish.
