Incredibly rich, with pineapple, persimmon, heather honey, creamed Jonagold apple and quince flavors. The lines are clearly drawn, with seamless acidity lending support and letting the finish both zip and drape at the same time. As pristine as a sweet wine can get. Best from 2016 through 2045. – JM

The 2011 L'Extravagant does not have an explosive nose like other vintages but one that unfurls in the glass with gorgeous ripe kiwi fruit dried honey and quince. The palate possesses a ravishing entry with vibrant white peach and apricot notes; a silver thread of acidity that cuts through its viscous texture like a knife through (very sweet) butter. The tongue positively tingles with pleasure after this elixir has been ejected. This is nothing short of spectacular even if personally I think the regular Doisy-Daene is just as worthy. Drink 2014-2040.

This differs from the grand vin with the noticeable presence of sauvignon blanc. Beautiful golden color with the slightest hint of green. This is a very large scaled and luxurious cuvee that emphasizes ripeness while still showing stunning mineral verve and freshness. Closed but very precise. Ripe stone fruit flavors rich apricot preserves and orange marmalade along with tropical notes of pineapple and toasted coconut. Mouth coating and luxuriously textured displaying additional notes of passion fruit citrus and white flowers enveloped in a long fresh finish. This is a baby and will need ample cellaring to really open up.
