Product description

Grape: Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc. Region: France> Bordeaux> Sauternes. Notes: 18-20 months in French Oak. Description: Doisy-Védrines's 27 hectares of vineyards are situated on the highest plateau in Barsac and are planted with 80% Sémillon, 15% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Muscadelle. The grapes are hand-picked and the yields are painfully low, even by Sauternes standards. Doisy-Védrines is one of the richest and most full-bodied wines in Barsac and it significantly uses the Sauternes AC rather than the Barsac AC. It needs at least 5 years of bottle ageing and the best vintages will keep for up to 25 years. Light and floral with honeyed peach, and a touch of vanilla-cinnamon on the nose. The palate is explosive with a really intense drive of fruit, with honeyed peach, papaya, pear and pineapple balanced by good acidity which cuts through the tropical fruit and gives the wine a great lift. It's both luscious and graceful, gently caressing the palate and finishing with great length. Food pairing: Almond desserts, apple desserts, fruit, blue cheese, custard, Foie Gras, etc.
