(WA96-98 points) The 2015 L'Extravagant de Doisy Daene has a powerful, intense but very pure bouquet laden with acacia honey, peach and quince, yet very defined and not at all overwhelming - remarkable given the richness locked into this Sauternes. The palate is medium-bodied with sensual, rounded, honeyed fruit, plenty of botrytis as you would expect, but leavened with a keen line of acidity. The finish offers peach and nectarine mixed with wild honey and a dash of spice to complete a fabulous wine from Denis Dubourdieu. - Neal Martin

Viscous but pure and refined, with a long honeysuckle edge through the finish. Best from... Very bright star fruit, pineapple and white peach flavors pick up yellow apple, quince and lemon peel notes along the way. Viscous but pure and refined, with a long honeysuckle edge through the finish. Best from 2020 through 2040. From France. — J.M.

One of the most plush, flamboyant wines of the year, the 2015 Doisy-Daëne L' Extravagant lives up to its name. Apricot jam, coconut, crème brulée, spice and exotic white flowers meld together in a Sauternes of exquisite beauty. This is a gorgeous wine from the late Denis Dubourdieu.
