    Parker : 96-98 / 100
    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    There are just three barrels of the L'Extravagant de Doisy-Daene, a blend of 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc that delivers 210gms/L residual sugar. It has a typically audacious bouquet of -thick- honeyed fruit that is richer and more decadent than anything you will find this year. The palate is unctuous on the entry with pure honeyed fruit interlaced with orange zest and peach. The acidity is well-judged, maintaining the equilibrium so crucial to this wine, while the finish has the weight of a German TBA. This is utterly irresistible, Denis Dubourdieu fashioning a decadent wine that is effortlessly counterbalanced by the razor-sharp acidity.
