Description

The finesse and purity of a 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.

Vinification and ageing

The production of sweet wines at Château Doisy-Daëne requires a very thorough series of harvests to be carried out by experienced pickers in 3 to 6 passages. Only grapes that have developed the famous "noble rot" are picked, and only at the most favourable time. The juices are then extracted by a slow pressing before undergoing plot fermentation in oak barrels. A pre-blending is carried out 3 months after harvest. Ageing lasts 12 months in oak barrels.

The blend

The Château Doisy-Daëne 2020 is made of 100% Sémillon.
