With 12.2% alcohol and 212 gms residual sugar the L'Extravagant de Doisy-Daene consists of 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillion. It has a very taut controlled bouquet that (pardon the expression) is less extravagant than recent vintages but is beautifully defined with touches of kiwi fruit green apple and limestone. The palate is mellifluous on the entry struck through with brilliant acidity lending it such tension and freshness that is in tune with the vintage. Denis hopes to have nine barrels of this fabulous Barsac. -Neal Martin

Offers lots of sweet botrytis character with graham heather honey fig and glazed pear notes followed by an unctuous finish. Mouthfilling with some serious power in reserve. The most backward 2010 Sauternes I've tasted... Offers lots of sweet botrytis character with graham heather honey fig and glazed pear notes followed by an unctuous finish. Mouthfilling with some serious power in reserve. The most backward 2010 Sauternes I've tasted so far. -JM

Made every year except 2008 and 1997-1999 inclusive. Not a special parcel. For Semillon certain berries carefully selected at the rate of one basket filled per hour - in the middle of the vintage not successive tries. The Sauvignon Blanc fruit for L'Extravagant comes from special low-yielding parcels. Usually the fruit comes from the second trie. Very sweet and unctuous. There is also freshness and confidence here and lots of structure. Very pure and lively. Doisy-Daëne is about _21 a bottle L'Extravagant about _120-ish. RS 212 g/l TA 4.2 g/l. 18 out of 20
