Wine Enthusiast, 94 points: Surprisingly dry this has richness rather than sweetness and intense powerful botrytis. The honey is intensely perfumed along with baked apples and spice. Certainly a long-aging wine.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 97 points: (WA95-97 points) The 2015 Doisy-Daene has a detailed bouquet, very correct, nothing showy or flamboyant as is typical of Denis Dubourdieu's Barsac. The palate is extremely well balanced and very pure: citrus fruit...
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 97 points: The 2009 Climens is certainly more expressive on the nose compared to the 2010 Climens with potent honeysuckle, fresh pear and orange blossom that gently unfurl from the glass. Compared to the 2009 Rieussec for example...

Wine Spectator, 96 points: (WS93-96 points) A plumper, richer style than most Barsacs, with almond cream, ginger and hazelnut accents starting to develop alongside the orange, apricot and peach flavors. Offers a lovely feel.—J.M.
Wine Enthusiast, 97 points: (WE95-97 points) The wine is ripe yet stylish and pure. It has a great balance between bright acidity and rich fruitiness. It is a very fine wine with great aging potential, as it hints at the more opulent future to come.
Wine Spectator, 97 points: (WS94-97 points) Vibrant, with a singed almond frame sprinting along, this offers nectarine, white peach and star fruit notes. Mirabelle plum and pineapple details echo through the finish. Very long, boasting terrific...
Wine Spectator, 98 points: (WS95-98 points) A scintillating wine, with apricot, pear and nectarine notes that are rich yet piercing. Heather and jasmine details gild the finish, which is very long and shows serious cut.—J.M.
