2005 Doisy-Daëne, Sauternes (375ml)

SKU #1072049 95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Cellar Selection 0 Under the control of white wine wizard Denis Dubourdieu, this is one of the great wines of Barsac. It has intensity of sweetness, but just the right lightness, which gives it freshness as well as richness. This is a great wine in its early stages, and is certainly likely to age over many years. (RV) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind at the 10-Year On Tasting in Sauternes. The 2005 Château Doisy-Daëne has a very attractive nose with perfumed apricot blossom, white peach and honey all infused with cold stone scents. The palate is very well balanced with beautifully judged acidity. This feels harmonious in the mouth, almost Coutet-like in style with a long, lightly spiced finish. This is an excellent Doisy-Daene from Denis Dubourdieu. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Masses of crushed grape, honey and hints of clove and nutmeg. Full-bodied, very sweet and very lively, with lots of acidity and spicy fruit. Long and flavorful, with loads of passion fruit flavor. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Scents of blood orange hint at the acidity that drives this wine; it moderates the proportions of the broad, rich flavor and finishes clean. The scent of pure, fresh honey lasts. For the cellar. Inner quote mark (10/2008)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full, bright yellow. Honey and marzipan on the rather stunted nose. Then supersweet, dense and tactile, but with the ripe pineapple and marzipan flavors currently muted by sulfur dioxide. Shows the power of the vintage but will need time to express itself. (ST) Inner quote mark (8/2008)
