Thick and spicy with unctuous still slightly raw-seeming layers of apricot peach and fig. Ginger cream and green tea check in on the finish. Rather backward still but there's lots balled up. -J.M.

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.

Nothing really exuberant here but lots of subtle fruit and spices. The palate shows pretty notes of oranges and cinnamon. Silky finish. Peaches and white fruits too.

Deeper in color than its peers, the Doisy-Vedrines 2010 has an animated bouquet with strong scents of tangerine, pink grapefruit and dried honey, although it is missing some delineation and refinement of one of Olivier Casteja’s best vintages. The palate is medium-bodied with a more promising viscous opening of tangy marmalade and quince. It actually improves in the mouth, with a defined and spicy finish. Hopefully, the aromatics will muster something to say with bottle age, as the palate is commendable. Drink now-2028. 90+ - NEAL MARTIN

Mid gold. Very rich and heady on the nose. Quite exotic and interesting. Subtle and complex. Great weight and great sweetness. A freshness on the finish but green does not dominate this wine.
