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.

(94–96) Barrel Sample. This concentrated wine is intense in botrytis and shows potential for aging. All this richness is balanced by a fresh streak and lemon zest acidity at the end.

(VN 92-94 points) The 2018 Doisy-Védrines has a quintessential nose for this Barsac with honey, quince and Satsuma aromas, rather intense if not quite as defined as its peers. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity counterbalancing the unctuous honeyed fruit that segues into a spicy/ginger tinged finish. Excellent. -- Neal Martin

(WA 90-92 points) Pale to medium lemon-gold in color, the 2018 Doisy-Vedrines gives up bold notes of warm pineapple, baked pears and spice cake with nuances of orange blossoms, toasted almonds and baking bread. The palate provides a great intensity of tropical and citrus flavors with a racy line of freshness and long, spicy finish. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

(89-90) A little syrupy, but some attractive sweetness and it’s a little spicy. Full-bodied. Oily texture at the end.
