2009 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes (375ml)
94 points Wine Spectator: "Richly layered and detailed, but thoroughly mouthwatering, this lets lacy citrus, floral and white peach flavors meld into a core of quince, fig and persimmon fruit, while warm piecrust and honey roasted almond notes drive through the finish. Very long, with superb cut despite its power. Best from 2015 through 2032." (03/12) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This is comparatively timid on the nose, giving very little away at the moment despite rigorous coaxing. But the palate is very promising, very well balanced, very focused with a fine citrus attack on the entry, fanning out towards an apricot, white peach and lime tinged finish that shows a great deal of unctuous honeyed fruit on the finish. This is an exuberant Doisy-Vedrines that yearns to offer pleasure." (04/10) 91-93 points Wine Enthusiast: "On the dry side, showing acidity, a bitter almond character, followed by spice, creamed apples and a dry final. A weighty wine, with an edge of acidity that is not quite in balance." (Web, 04/10) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Cellar. K&L's Notes: *1/2 Fabulous acidity. This displays less sweetness than the Daëne. Focused. Ralph: Elegant, with lemon-honey notes.
