    The Richesse and Elegance of an Exceptional Sauternes Grand Cru de Sauternes

    Product of quite the prodigious vintage for sweet wines, the Château Doisy-Védrines 2017 promises to be a great vintage indeed, already displaying the style of a Cru that is among the elite of Barsac.

    A Grand Cru Classé by the official 1855 classification of Sauternes and Barsac wines, Château Doisy-Védrines manages a superb vineyard, planted on the clay-limestone ridge of Haut-Barsac, in the south-east of the Bordeaux.

    Blessed with an exceptional terroir, the vines are cultivated with extreme care, favouring very low yields and selective sorting (in 3 to 4 passes for the 2017 vintage). All these elements come together to make the Château Doisy-Védrines an emblematic property for the sweet wines of Bordeaux.

    The early harvest began on September 21st and ended on October 13th, requiring rigorous plot selection for a yield limited to 6hl / ha, due to frosts that occurred during two nights at the end of April.

    Produced from this delicate vintage, the Château Doisy-Védrines 2017 is brilliant, revealing the expression of all the grape varieties making up the blend (95% of Sémillon, complemented by 5% of Sauvignon blanc and Muscadelle). The profile of this wine exudes the aromatic intensity of the fruit, with an ample mouth revealing a superb texture, in which the juicy fruit expresses itself in with a balance between sugar and acidity. The Château Doisy-Védrines 2017 reveals itself to be a sure value among the sweet wines of Sauternes.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2017 Doisy-Vedrines is redolent of musk perfume, beeswax and lemon marmalade with lime cordial and floral wafts in the background. Rich and fantastically intense, the palate packs in the citrus and savory layers with a crisp backbone to balance and a long, lifted finish. I love the purity and energy of this wine!
