1997 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

SKU #990548 93 points Wine Spectator

 Lots of spice, honey, apricot and dried fruit character. Full-bodied and very sweet, with a long, spicy vanilla aftertaste. A lively young thing. (JS)  (1/2000)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Aromatic, nuanced nose combines peach, apricot, pear and flowers. Ripe and intensely flavored, with vibrant, firm acidity framing the fruit salad flavors. Complicating notes of spice and honey. Young and structured for slow evolution in bottle. Superripe finish throws off notes of toffee and toast. (ST)  (7/2000)

K&L Notes

A fabulous Sauternes in the league with their mindblowing 1989. Coconut aromas and honeyed flavors. Great acid balance. This wine is superb. Cellar candidate.
