2007 Doisy Daëne, Sauternes (Previously $55)

SKU #1064245

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Denis Dubourdieu conjured a wonderful Barsac in 2007. Here there is an initial lightness on the nose that builds with each swirl of the glass. It exhibits fine minerality with apple, dried honey and a touch of wet stone. The palate is very harmonious with good acidity, very focused and succinct with great precision towards the poised finish. This has barely starting motoring, but it possesses an unbridled sense of nonchalance." (02/12) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Very fruity, showing tropical fruit such as mango on the nose, with lots of spice. Full-bodied and really sweet, with a honeylike, almost syrupy density. Spicy and intense on the finish." (03/10) 92 points Stephen Tanzer: "Bright medium gold. Knockout nose melds apricot, pineapple, curry powder and exotic smoky oak. Very dense and thick, with a honeyed sweetness, but kept in check today by strong acidity. This very powerful wine is youthfully imploded at present, even a bit aggressive, and will need several years to express itself. Late finishing notes of flowers and minerals contribute to the wine's vibrant character." (Aug 10) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "The color is light on this wine, which is really only just beginning to show richness. The botrytis dominates, with a fat, oily texture needing many years of aging. There is a lovely ripe orange marmalade flavor on the finish." (06/10)

Additional Information:



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
