Every bottle of these I've opened has been excellent and enjoyed by all who smell or taste it. Great PnP for guests alone or with a complimentary dessert. Great balance between floral, fruit, acid, and botrytis components. Outstanding stuff for the $!

(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.
