2003 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright yellow-gold. Spicy, ripe, complex aromas of peach, apricot, orange and nutmeg. Juicy, shapely and sweet, with lovely inner-mouth lift and aromatic character. High-toned and expressive but also quite fresh and precise for the year. Finishes impressively long and firm. A very strong performance for this chateau, and a good value.

No tasting note given.
Wow. This shows superintense aromas of dried pineapple, apple tart and pecan pie with honey. Full-bodied and medium-sweet, with lovely honey character and a medium finish... Best after 2009.
K&L' Clyde Beffa writes: "Coconut and honey aromas. Has some lemony undertones on the palate. Very rich and concentrated. Oily." *1/2
