2011 Doisy-Védrines, Sauternes

SKU #1172080 95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark *Barrel Sample* A gorgeous wine that offers a firm, botrytis character, with aromas of spice, apple and orange zest. It’s powerful and meant for long aging. (RV) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Smart Buys and #18 on the Top 100 of 2014* Pure, with piercing persimmon, pineapple, white peach and quince flavors. Gorgeous floral notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom form the backdrop, while a heather accent caresses the finish. Overwhelmingly pure in the end, with a finish that sails on and on. Best from 2016 through 2035. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2014)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A white with peaches, honey and lemon-curd character. Caramel, too. Full body, medium-sweet with a fresh, clean finish. Lots of mineral undertones and lightly toasted oak. Needs five to six years to come together. Intensely sweet in the finish. Try in 2019. Inner quote mark (1/2014)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted at the château, the 2011 Chateau Doisy-Védrines has a more mineral-driven bouquet than the 2009, more reserved with scents of beeswax, honeysuckle and jasmine. The palate is fresh and vibrant with viscous honeyed fruit, a dash of spice and a flowing, harmonious finish that has only just begun to start showing what it is capable of. This has great potential and may vie with the 2009 as one of the modern-day benchmarks from the estate. This is a fabulous Barsac from Olivier Castèja and his team. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2015)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright golden straw-yellow. Pear, peach, mango and flowers on the enticing, lively nose. Intensely flavored, fresh and sweet, offering lovely penetration and definition to the ripe white stone fruit, lime oil and floral flavors. Really stains the palate while retaining a light touch on the finish, which hints at soil and coconut. This strikes me as more vibrant and less opulent than some past vintages of this wine, which I had found somewhat heavy. (ID) Inner quote mark (8/2014)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Bright pale gold. Alluring super clean botrytis hint with lovely combination of medium sugar, not great weight and fine acidity. Inner quote mark (11/2015)
