Barrel sample. Attractive and fruity, a wine that has soft texture with light touches of botrytis. It's warm and rich, with a fine final texture of dryness and acidity.
Quite lively, with a floral edge to the white peach, pineapple and heather notes. Good freshness and definition.
Pure fruited: citrus and a touch of pineapple and ripe apple. Delicately honeyed. Sour/fresh on the palate. Lively and bright if not yet complex.
The 2012 Doisy-Vedrines has a typically forthright, honeyed, nectarine-scented bouquet that does not quite possess the complexity or nuance of recent successes. The palate is well-balanced with plenty of viscous, tropical-tinged fruit cut through by crisp acidity, though the finish is a little disjointed at the moment. I believe this Barsac will come together during barrel maturation and it will constitute a commendable short to medium-term wine.
