The purity and complexity of a fine sweet wine from Sauternes

The estate
Located in Barsac, in the Sauternes appellation, Château Doisy-Daëne has belonged to the Dubourdieu family since 1924. Led by three generations of winegrowers and boasting an exceptional terroir, this Classified Second Growth of 1855 produces sweet wines recognised as one of the greatest wines of Bordeaux. Since 2000, Denis Dubourdieu has been at the helm of the property.

The vineyard
Château Doisy-Daëne is situated on the Barsac plateau. This area is characterised by a unique geological formation. There is a thin layer of clayey sand referred to as "the red sands of the barsacais" which rest upon limestone subsoils. This porous limestone traps the rainfall during the winter and makes it available for the vines later on in the growing season. This contributes to the exceptional finesse of the wines from Château Doisy-Daëne.

The winemaking
The fine dessert wines of Château Doisy-Daëne are made possible by a very meticulous harvest carried out by experienced pickers through 3 to 6 passages. These different sortings make it possible to harvest the grapes with just the right amount of noble rot. The juices are then extracted by a slow pressing, before fermentation in oak barrels, which are renewed quarterly.

The ageing
10 months in barrel, followed by 9 months of ageing in stainless steel tanks before bottling.

The blend
100% Sémillon.

Tasting
Tasted as a wine future, the Château Doisy-Daëne 2019 reveals a pale yellow colour. The aromatic bouquet seduces with its intensity, purity and complexity. This sun-kissed wine packs the palate with its tasty and suave texture, while maintaining a beautiful freshness in its fruit and great length on the finish. A superb Barsac, which will evolve gracefully over the years. To taste from 2022 onwards or age until 2050 for those who are more patient.
