A bright almost chiseled style offering fresh-cut pineapple quince and candied Meyer lemon flavors with a long floral-filled finish. Seriously long with lovely lacy detail already showing on the finish. Should be long-lived.-J.M.

A gorgeous wine that offers a firm botrytis character with aromas of spice apple and orange zest. It's powerful and meant for long aging. - R.V.

A white with peaches, honey and lemon-curd character. Caramel, too. Full body, medium-sweet with a fresh, clean finish. Lots of mineral undertones and lightly toasted oak. Needs five to six years to come together... A white with peaches, honey and lemon-curd character. Caramel, too. Full body, medium-sweet with a fresh, clean finish. Lots of mineral undertones and lightly toasted oak. Needs five to six years to come together. Intensely sweet in the finish. Try in 2019.

Tasted at the château, the 2011 Chateau Doisy-Védrines has a more mineral-driven bouquet than the 2009, more reserved with scents of beeswax, honeysuckle and jasmine. The palate is fresh and vibrant with viscous honeyed fruit, a dash of spice and a flowing, harmonious finish that has only just begun to start showing what it is capable of. This has great potential and may vie with the 2009 as one of the modern-day benchmarks from the estate. This is a fabulous Barsac from Olivier Castèja and his team. - Neal Martin

80% Semillon 15% sauvignon blanc 5% muscadelle. Fermented and aged in oak barrels of which 60% are new. The vines are planted on mixed clay and limestone soils. Slightly cloudy light gold color.

Slightly cloudy light gold color. The nose is expressive with lemon oil orange rind and ripe yellow stone fruit aromas. The palate mirrors the nose adding a wonderful background streak of wet stone along with ample notes of saffron and spice from the botrytis. A great combination of ripeness and freshness. Enjoy over the next 10-20 years.
