    December 30, 2016 - It's been 6 years since we had one of these. Aging nicely. Good aroma of pineapple, but flavors of honey and vanilla. Great consistency with a daringly golden color. Looking forward to doing this again

    December 27, 2016 - Part of an end of night trio of stickies. Consistent with previous bottle.

    December 26, 2016 - Can't add anything new to the flavor descriptions.

    Wine was not clingy or syruppy; very enjoiyable sweet wine that worked well with custard pie dessert.

    October 28, 2016 - 93-94: slightly disappointed that this didn't score a little higher, but still excellent. Getting golden in color, nose was a little shy, palate was rich and intense. Acid was diminishing, but still there. Might be in a bit of an awkward stage, or could be topping out. Excellent. From 375ml.

    September 25, 2016 - This is clearly a step up from an everyday Sauternes. Nice depth & complexity. Well worth the $20 I paid for it and perfect for a cooler early fall day.

    (Chateau Doisy Vedrines Sauternes) COLOR-medium golden; NOSE-enormous bouquet; dried apricots for day; leachy fruit; caramel & cantaloupe; orange & banana peel; TASTE-exceptional balance; elegance & polish; the length is incredible; apricots; little peach on the back-end; I adore the banana peel; silkier than last time I had it; this has more balance than many dessert wines; secondary butterscotch & caramel; at $30-$50, this is a remarkable value; this rocks my face off; the perfect style of Sauterne for me w/ it's tremendous balance; WS-93; GV-99

    (Chateau Doisy-Védrines Barsac) A very bright and lively set of aromatics here, showing nice vanilla, honey and pineapple characteristics. Rich and creamy, with a rather soft and fleshy style, with acidity also on the low side. There is a little grip running beneath it all, and a rather candied pastille character to the fruit, nicely livened up with some good botrytis. Very good indeed.
