Doisy Védrines 2011
This wine has now sold out. To register your interest please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will notify you when it is back in stock.
The 2011 Doisy-Vedrines has a far more taciturn bouquet than the Doisy-Daene, offering its trademark tropical, peachy aromas that will hopefully develop more delineation throughout its maturation. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous entry. There are attractive spicy notes and a satisfying build in the mouth towards its botrytis-rich, tropical finish, although on this occasion I find it needing more tension to merit a higher score. Drink 2014-2030.

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.

The Casteja family produce excellent Barsac here on a regular basis and the price is normally very fair too. A rich botrytised nose. This opulent sweet wine has lovely notes of honey and peaches. Good viscosity and plumpness. Relatively low acidity for the vintage, forward and hard to resist.

The nose is quite light floral with a peachy apricot character. There is more weight and depth on the mid palate but the freshness is there at the back leaving the finish fragrant but quite light.

The most extensive of the Doisy estates has made a stunning wine in 2011: fine, elegant and beautifully restrained with peachy concentration balanced by flavours of citrus peel and pink grapefruit. Powerful and dense, this is rich yet refreshing on the palate, promising up to a decade of bottle development. 8+ years.

Perfect combination of generous flavours, lifted aromatics and freshness. Despite its power, the palate feels fresh and lively, ready for another sip. 150g per litre residual sugar with nearly 14% alcohol! Very successful vintage that is denser and sweeter than the 2009.
