    (Chateau Doisy-DaŽne Barsac) I distinctly recall when tasting the primeurs I preferred Védrines to Daëne, but today I think this wine just takes it. Bright, floral, crystalline and elegant, this wine has such a beautiful nose, with notes of vanilla ice cream, honey and pistachio nut. The palate has a wonderful presence, big and stylish, creamy and rich, with crystalline yellow plum and tangerine, but with typically fine Barsac acidity. A super wine with a good jump up in score.

    (Chateau Doisy-DaŽne Barsac) This is vibrant, with fresh and lively grapefruit character, with plenty of rocky, chalky minerality. Good peppery acid on entry, leaner than some, but with a very elegant style. There is a nice midpalate fatness though, but a detached, fresh cut. A great contrast to the Doisy-Védrines.
