Estate Notes

Château Doisy Daene, 2001 is drinking beautifully right now.

When the original Doisy estate was split up in the 19th century, it was bought by an English gentleman who attached his name to this estate. Today it is owned and run by Pierre and Denis Dubourdieu, who have done more to improve the quality of white Bordeaux than anyone else. Famous for its finesse and poise, these elements have been enhanced by a wonderful richness in Doisy-Daene's 2001.

Reviews

"A light medium gold color and closed aromatics are found in the extravagantly rich, unctuous 2001. With terrific acidity, abundant botrytis, and a long, full-throttle finish...this spectacular effort...It is unquestionably one of the finest Doisy-Daenes I have ever tasted." Robert Parker

"The Doisy Daene 2001 is still quite backward on the nose compared to its peers and as a consequence, demands more coaxing from the glass: beeswax, honeycomb and a touch of lanolin. The palate is well balanced with a vibrant, citrus-fresh entry. This Barsac is struck through with engaging, lovely orange peel and citrus lemon notes here that segue into a refined and tensile finish that leaves you wanting any sip." eRobertParker.com

"Subtle but racy, with full body and medium sweetness, fresh acidity and an apple, honey aftertaste. Shows potential. Goes on and on." James Suckling
