Opened by R&C with dessert back at the house. Notes of apricot and pineapple with honey and ripe peach as well. Rich texture featuring flavors of apricot, orange rind, papaya and honey. Finishes with good length.

(Chateau Doisy-Védrines (Barsac)) Just a little more pure and lifted than Doisy-Daëne. Tinges of coconut, face cream too, a touch of lemon zest. On the palate a more appealing grip too, with lots of lovely substance countered quite beautifully by the well-honed acid to be found at its core. Again it speaks more of concentration of golden fruit than botrytis but the quality is still lovely. Most importantly it has a beautiful, composed and integrated style. Long too. This has developed very favourably since I tasted it at the primeurs.
(Chateau Doisy-Védrines Barsac) Freshness here, with vanilla, honey and lemon on the nose. The palate shows a slightly fat sweetness, with a rather diffuse character. It doesn't show the defining Barsac acidity that I look for. Good grip to it though.
