Doisy Védrines 2013
The sample of 2013 Doisy-Vedrines was showing a little reduction on the nose when I first tasted it. The palate is promising, however, perhaps more linear and less honeyed than recent vintages, but that is compensated by greater tension towards the middle and finish. You might describe this as a more streamlined Doisy-Vedrines, dare I say one that is more like Doisy-Daene in style, with wonderful mineralite on the finish.

Attractive apple-purée and honey character. Medium body, lightly sweet with a fresh finish. Outstanding length here.

This Barsac property is owned by the Casteja family who make wines of very high quality but sell them at very fair prices. Pale gold in appearance, with light, fresh and floral notes of orange and honey blossom layered over citrus fruits and white pear. The palate is wonderfully poised with a strong lemon curd note and refreshing acidity the centre of a wine that has flourishes of honeysuckle, peach compote, elderflower, and sweet vanilla. A very long, focused finish. This is absolutely delicious and should be great value.

Fragrant on the nose quite light there is a mix of tropical fruits on the start of the palate. The mid palate feels richer sweet fruited orange peel and apricot and at the back there is weight of fruit richness sweetness.
