L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daene is an exceptional wine, first created in 1990 by Pierre Dubourdieu and his son, Denis. Denis Dubourdieu wanted to produce a great 100% Sauvignon Blanc wine with noble rot. In that first vintage, the grapes were harvested at the beginning of November and were extremely concentrated, with great aromatic richness.
Since 1990, L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daene has been produced only in great vintages and in very limited quantities.
The L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daene 2018 presents a unique and racy style, combining power and freshness. This wine shows itself to be exceptionally aromatic, revealing notes of apricot and pineapple, enhanced by fresh citrus notes, like ripe orange, lemon and orange blossom, along with sweet spices. Full of freshness, the palate offers a nice acidity, developing delicious and elegant fruit flavors. This vintage is showing a very persistent length. The L’Extravagant de Doisy-Daene 2018 offers a magnificent expression of the potential of noble rot and the Barsac terroir in a great vintage.
