Poised and focussed, this gentle golden wine is easily one of the most successful of the vintage here. It has the beautiful pull between sweetness and acidity that not everyone has achieved in this late-harvest year. The texture is luscious and silky, but the flavours are bright and heading towards tart, with notes of lime, papaya and passion fruit. It's very good quality, showing clear minerality with a sense of life and freshness. A delicious wine, great job. 30% new oak.

(93-94) Serious density and spiciness with a full body, lovely sweetness and a flavorful, spicy finish. Lovely botrytis.

(92–94) Barrel Sample. Botrytis is an important element in this wine. It gives dryness and also sustains the ripe fruits and lemon peel flavors. At the same time, the wine has great poise and freshness.

(WA 92-94+ points) Pale lemon-gold colored, the 2018 Doisy Daëne bursts from the glass with vibrant mango, green guava and pink grapefruit notes plus hints of honeycomb, peach blossoms and almond croissant. The palate has bags of freshness and energy with a lovely silken texture and long finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

(91-94 points) One of the more impressive wines of the year, the 2018 Doisy-Daëne is silky, creamy and beautifully textured from start to finish. In this vintage, Doisy-Daëne has a bit more lift and airiness than is typically the case, with striking aromatic depth lending freshness to the green apple, mint and pineapple flavors. This is such a pretty wine. -- Antonio Galloni
