It has intensity of sweetnes but just the right lightness which gives it freshness as well as richness. This is a great wine in its early stages and is certainly likely to age over many years.

The 2005 Château Doisy-Daëne has a very attractive nose with perfumed apricot blossom, white peach and honey all infused with cold stone scents. The palate is very well balanced with beautifully judged acidity. This feels harmonious in the mouth, almost Coutet-like in style with a long, lightly spiced finish. This is an excellent Doisy-Daene from Denis Dubourdieu. - Neal Martin

Masses of crushed grape honey and hints of clove and nutmeg. Full-bodied very sweet and very lively with lots of acidity and spicy fruit. Long and flavorful with loads of passion fruit flavor. Best after 2012. -JS

Scents of blood orange hint at the acidity that drives this wine; it moderates the proportions of the broad, rich flavor and finishes clean. The scent of pure, fresh honey lasts. For the cellar.

The aromas open with apricot pineapple and fresh-cut flowers framed by caramel lychee and spice. On the palate there is a wonderful freshness that keeps it in balance and a richness that brings it together. Brisk acidity practically begs for immediate consumption yet this has all the stuffing to age for at least 20+ years. No rush to enjoy this now but you are in for a treat whenever you do.

On the nose elegant notes of cardamon and minerals blend with generous aromas of candied pineapple salted caramel and spicy soft florals. On the palate fresh tropical fruits and spring honey balance with mineral character... On the nose elegant notes of cardamon and minerals blend with generous aromas of candied pineapple salted caramel and spicy soft florals. On the palate fresh tropical fruits and spring honey balance with mineral character and structure. Glossy texture with a creamy finish driven by fresh compelling acidity.
