Very textured, this is a complex wine. There is a strong sense of minerality here, along with flavors of ripe apricots, peaches and grapes. The texture is zesty and tangy, showing some taut, nervy acidity. This is a wine... Very textured, this is a complex wine.

This is a wine for serious aging so don’t drink before 2017.

Planted to clay-limestone soils. This citrus dominated style displays light notes of botrytis and is bright and focused from front to back. A good sense of sweetness is present without being cloying thanks to the high acids and the mouthfeel gives the impression of a light bodied wine. Enjoyable and linear but very light on the botrytis notes. Enjoy through 2035.

A very ripe and broad style, with intense pineapple, passion fruit and mango notes, featuring a broad finish that takes on a toasted almond frame and a light accent of spiced nutmeg. For fans of the bigger style. Best...

Delicate and pure nose with peach, mandarin and white flowers. Even some chalky mineral notes and orange blossom. This pretty dessert wine is medium sweet with a charming texture and fruit on the palate. Nicely balanced... Delicate and pure nose with peach, mandarin and white flowers. Even some chalky mineral notes and orange blossom. This pretty dessert wine is medium sweet with a charming texture and fruit on the palate. Nicely balanced with a silky finish. Drink from 2015.

17.5/20 Fresh fruit, really thick and unctuous mouthfeel, fragrant spice on the finish. White chocolate. Indulgently sweet, but with a nice citric tang to finish. (RH)

Tasted at the château, the 2010 Château Doisy-Védrines has an elegant bouquet that does not quite deliver the intensity of either the 2009 or indeed, the 2011, but there are delightful scents of citrus... Tasted at the château, the 2010 Château Doisy-Védrines has an elegant bouquet that does not quite deliver the intensity of either the 2009 or indeed, the 2011, but there are delightful scents of citrus fruit, yellow plum and quince to enjoy and the aromas are nicely delineated. The palate is focused and balanced with the hints of passion fruit that I noticed before, precise and poised with a linear finish. There is a pleasing sense of energy and tension to this wine. I could even imagine commencing a dinner with this instead of finishing - why not? Drink over the next two decades. - Neal Martin
