Very backward today with viscous green plum green almond quince pineapple fig and pear notes still assimilating one another. The long toasted almond- and ginger-filled finish has terrific depth.-J.M.

The Château Doisy-Daëne 2011 builds upon its outstanding performance from barrel. It has a powerful bouquet with seductive scents of wild honey, yellow flowers and orange blossom that are well defined, perhaps a little more extravagant then Denis Dubourdieu's wines of yore. The palate is mellifluous on the entry with well-judged acidity, sensual and harmonious, poised on the entry and then fanning out gloriously with Clementine and honeyed notes that shimmer. This is an irresistible Barsac. - Neal Martin

Beautiful light gold with hints of green. The nose is packed with honeyed spice decadent apricot and peach aromas. Ripe and rich with an almost marshmallow-like texture. Fat and rich up front with well-delineated yellow stone fruit showing good persistence and refreshing acidity that brings the wine into sharp focus. The long finish has brighter citrus notes and lemon curd flavor all underscored by nice botrytis spice. Enjoy over the next 10-25 years.

Fruit salad and floral aromas along with spicy honeyed orange on the perfumed nose. Opulent and concentrated with lovely inner-mouth aromatic quality and bright acidity framing the sweet fruit salad and pure mineral flavors. The very long finish offers a restrained sweetness and a fresh lemon sorbet quality.

Aromas of green-plum jelly and a touch of toast set out a wine that is spicy as well as fresh. Bitter orange marmalade flavors are laced with lime acidity, lying over a firm, tense structure with a mineral edge. It will develop well, but don’t drink before 2020.

A dense wine with honey spice and butterscotch undertones. Full and very sweet. Turns spicy on the finish. Lots of botrytis character.
