    October 14, 2017 - Tasty with thick tropical fruit but found it lacking in complexity. It is pretty well balanced, perhaps too much on the sweet side, but did not seem as impressive as the first few I tried ... perhaps my taste has changed also.

    May 20, 2017 - Note: I use a scale on which 85 represents a very good wine.
    The above accompanies all my TNs. I need to add that I am probably not an objective source for opinions about Sauternes. I could drink it for breakfast; in fact, I might try that tomorrow.

    Great. Excellent balance of sweetness and acidity. Very good nose. Easy drinking. Seems to be "turning the corner" in terms of developing the darker colors of Sauternes. Will revisit in a few years to see what has happened. Good to drink now, probably good for another 10 years or so.

    May 19, 2017 - dark golden color. Bouquet not very expressive. Balanced structure. Medium finish.

    March 4, 2017 - Beautiful golden color, delightful sweet wine. Well balanced, with many complex flavors. A great wine!

    (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.
